It is hard to know where to begin. The scope, the callousness, the depravity of your crimes is almost unfathomable ... it was all about money. It takes no business acumen to take money from someone at the end of a gun. You have in certain quarters become a face of this city but you, sir, do not represent the face of this city. --U.S. District Court Judge Denise J. Casper
