Back in 2011, Lee B. Farkas received a 30-year prison sentence for his role in a long-running mortgage fraud that federal prosecutors said caused about $2.9 billion in losses and brought down a bank with $12 billion in assets. That same year, billionaire Galleon Group founder Raj Rajaratnam got 11 years in prison for insider trading—the longest sentence ever handed down for such a crime. In 2009, Marc Dreier, a former New York lawyer, received a 20-year sentence for bilking hedge funds and other investors out of $700 million. And in 2010, Scott Rothstein was sentenced to 50 years for running a $1.2 billion Ponzi scheme.
