Freezing Ruth Madoff's Assets

Hold the conjugal visits: Bernard Madoff might soon have company in prison. The New York Post reports, “Federal investigators are ‘working around the clock’ to freeze the assets of mega-fraudster Bernie Madoff's wife, fearing she will try to flee the country or stash the nearly $93 million in her name beyond their reach.” Says a source: “The US attorneys will be in court in the next week or so to tell a judge that they believe Mrs. Madoff's assets are derived from ill-gotten gains and that they should be frozen for a certain period of time while the investigation is ongoing.”
