Ira Sorkin has put it out there that he'd like his client to get less than life when he's sentenced on June 29. Also, apparently Ponzi Boy is planning on speaking about "the shame he feels and the pain he's caused," and attempt to paint himself as a victim with regard to "the death threats and anti-Semitic e-mails he's received."
Update: This is good-- Sorkin is asking that Bernie get twelve years.
