What makeover show in hell?
Remember Aubrey Lee Price? Georgian banker who screwed investors out of millions, faked his own death, was on the lam for about 18 months, during which time he set up a grow house in Florida and transformed his look from southern banker to the love child of James Lipton and Dave Navarro? Got caught when some local cops pulled him over for having illegally tinted windows? Today he was sentenced to 30 years in prison and will also be ordered to pay approximately $46 million in restitution. How will he come up with the cash? Oh, he's got a plan.
While in custody in Statesboro’s Bulloch County Jail back in February, Price articulated one possible restitution plan—a job as, yes, a research analyst for hedge funds. From prison. “I have three job offers already,” he told me then. “I think I could make a half million a year writing incredible research. Once I study and get a rhythm of the market, I’m pretty good. I ain’t gonna lie about that. I was accurate more than 53 percent of the time. Right now I’ve got several trades I’d like to put out there, but I’m not going to. I want to make money on them myself. One is the trade of a lifetime.”
