Madoff won't appeal 150-year sentence

NEW YORK (AP) - Disgraced financier Bernard Madoff has decided
against appealing his 150-year sentence for a multi-billion dollar
fraud.
Madoff's lawyer, Ira Sorkin, said Thursday that there will be no
appeal of the sentence. He declined to say why the decision was
made.
Madoff was sentenced last week. He pleaded guilty to charges
that he bilked thousands of investors out of billions of dollars.
