Madoff's Niece Preps for Prison

Bernard Madoff’s niece, Shana, may not be on trial, but she’s making preparations just in case: The New York Post is reporting that, worried they too may join Uncle Bernie in the clinker, Shana and another relative “have contacted a consultant who teaches white-collar criminals how to survive in federal prison and secure early release.” Madoff was the compliance officer at Madoff’s investment firm, and has contacted Larry Levine, a former federal prisoner and founder of Wall Street Prison Consultants. Levine confirmed that “a female relative of Bernie Madoff contacted me” about taking his Fedtime 101 course. Another source said Shana “has been asking around what it's like to do time.”
