Fargo man who stole millions in Ponzi scheme sentenced
A Fargo man who stole millions from investors asked for their forgiveness Monday before making himself out to be a victim in a lengthy speech that upset the judge sentencing him.
East Central Judicial District Judge Steven Marquart told Larry Atkins his remarks didn't fool him, saying the insurance agent had not thought about his victims at all.
"You deserve every one of these eight years that you're getting here," Marquart said.
