Ponzi Schemer To 15+ Celebrities Kenneth Starr Gets 7 Years In Jail

Kenn Starr, who admitted he was guilty in a ponzi scheme that targeted celebrities (like Wesley Snipes) in September, will spend 7 years in jail.

He told the court

“I stand before you a contrite, humiliated and ashamed man. (I) strayed from the values I’ve been taught. I have no one to blame but myself.”

Some argue he also has his wife, a stripper, to blame because of her extravagant spending habits, but Starr’s taking full responsibility.
