"It means a lot for me," Aviles said. "It shows I'm kind of liked, or my daughter is, anyway. In all honesty, it's kind of cool when you have your whole team on your side."

Ex-Madoff Trader sentenced to 10 months home confinement

NEW YORK ? A longtime trader for Bernard Madoff's firm has been sentenced to 10 months of home confinement after he was credited for cooperating with prosecutors.
