Dozens of his victims have homes in Aspen. And more than 100 victims of failed financier Bernard Madoff’s multibillion-dollar fraud urged a New York judge Monday to sentence him harshly, saying he ruined their lives, leaving many of them depressed, bitter and hopeless.In 113 statements, the victims from across the country repeatedly referred to the 71-year-old Madoff as a “monster” who, as one victim put it, has “no soul, no remorse, no conscience.”Letter after letter urged U.S. District Judge Denny Chin to sentence Madoff to the maximum 150 years in prison after he pleaded guilty in March to securities fraud, perjury and other charges.Madoff, who has been jailed since he entered his guilty plea, is scheduled to be sentenced on June 29.
