10 years. It's a federal case, so he'll probably serve all of it.
Chicago-based TV pitchman Kevin Trudeau was sentenced to 10 years in prison today for repeatedly defying court orders to pay a whopping $37 million fine over his fraudulent infomercials.
Trudeau, 51, smiled slightly as U.S. District Judge Ronald Guzman imposed the sentence. The judge called him "deceitful to the very core."
A Trudeau supporter caused a disturbance in the courtroom during the sentence, refused to leave and was carried out by security officers.
