(06/29/09) NEW YORK (AP) - Bernard Madoff has been sentenced to 150 years in prison for his multibillion-dollar fraud scheme.

U.S. District Judge Denny Chin handed down the sentenced in New York on Monday.

He pleaded guilty to securities fraud and other charges in March and has been jailed since.
