Judge toughens Bernard Madoff's home detention rules

December 20, 2008 02:12

Facing a growing chorus of angry investors, disgraced financier Bernard Madoff, who allegedly plundered $50 billion from investors, lost his right to leave his home Friday and was ordered to hire private around-the-clock security guards to protect him. US Magistrate Judge Theodore H. Katz approved the revised bail conditions after prosecutors sent a letter requesting them earlier in the day. The order calls for Madoff's wife to pay for a security firm to provide 24-hour video monitoring of Madoff's apartment doors.
