Moustachioed Texan supervillain, Allen Stanford, has been sentenced to 110 years in prison. We’re pretty sure he hasn’t been ‘jailed for 110 years’ as the headlines read at Cricinfo and the BBC. That seems to imply he’ll serve the entire sentence. He won’t.
Prosecutors will be gutted though. They were pushing for a 230-year sentence. They’ll be incandescent with rage at the thought that in 50-odd years a 115-year-old Allen Stanford will be out Ponzi-ing about, goosing people’s wives, laughing at his good fortune.
