Allen Stanford -- the massive Ponzi-schemer and full-time nutter who put his billions in illicit profits into a Coral Gables castle and cricket tournaments in the Caribbean -- was sentenced to more than a century of jail time for his crimes today. A federal judge in Texas sentenced the financier, who had a major office in downtown Miami, to 110 years in prison. Stanford was defiant until the end.
"I'm not up here to ask for sympathy or forgiveness," he said. "I'm up here to tell you from my heart I didn't run a Ponzi scheme."
