Scott Rothstein thought that he could get away with stealing all that money. That’s $1.2 billion, in case you don’t know. But as is the case with all scheming criminals, your day will eventually come, and you will have to attoin for your mistakes one way or another.
After being convicted for his involvement in running a $1.2 billion Pozi Scheme, the New York lawyer - or ex-lawyer, that is - was recently sentenced to 100 years in prison, which means that unless he’s sold his soul to the devil, he probably wouldn’t be smelling freedom for the rest of his life.
What got our attention from this saga is that while he was busy stealing from his victims, Rothstein parlayed that money he boosted into cars. Lots and lots of cars. Among the notable models that made its way into Rothstein’s possession included a Bugatti Veyron , a Lamborghini LP670-4 SV , a Mercedes SLR McLaren Roadster , and even a Ford Expedition Limousine. That’s right; an Expedition Limo.
Now that Rothstein’s crooked shenanigans are over, the US Treasury saw fit to dispose of all his sweet rides, auctioning all of them off - including some pretty impressive boats - and collecting a total of $5.8 million, which would then be used to re-pay some of the poor folks Rothstein screwed over in the past.
And if you wanted to know, the Veyron was scooped up for "just" $858,000. But seeing as a criminal previously owned it, we wouldn’t want any part of that car even at that price. Bad vibes all around, we say.
