									Prison Consultants Predict Following in Their Father's Footsteps Will Not Be Easy for the Madoff's Many of Bernie Madoff’s victims believe that his sons, Andrew and Mark Madoff, took active roles in his 50 billion dollar Ponzi scheme. They also believe that their federal indictments are overdue. New York, NY June 30, 2009 -- Many of Bernie Madoff’s victims believe that his sons, Andrew and Mark Madoff, took active roles in his 50 billion dollar Ponzi scheme. They also believe that their federal indictments are overdue. Let’s speculate for a moment that they both get indicted and end up also going to federal prison. Here are 3 things that two top prison consultants believe the Madoff’s should do and learn before they go behind the fence. First, be proactive. “They both need to hire a federal prison consultant as soon as possible,” said Steve Vincent, a former federal inmate turned prison consultant who runs Federal Prison Consultant Services in Louisville, KY. “It’s no surprise that most high profile individuals who have been sentenced to serve time in prison hire a prison consultant to help them. They know that to survive in prison they need to be working with someone who has actually been to prison, which is something that their attorney can’t help them with,” he said. “Hiring a good prison consultant is as important as hiring a good attorney,” he added. Second, be humble. “The Madoff’s should begin to think and act like minimum wage workers instead of the young millionaire tycoons that some of the media portrays them to be,” said Steven Oberfest, also a prison consultant and director of The Prison Coach, a New York City based prison consulting firm. “Inmates in federal prisons read the Wall Street Journal and Vanity Fair Magazine, they know all about the history of this case and the history of the Madoff’s. If Andrew and Mark walk into prison with arrogant, millionaire attitudes it will not go unnoticed,” he said. “The other inmates will feel no pity for the Madoff’s and will subject them to the nastiest insults imaginable. They will need to learn how to become thick skinned very quickly, or they better know how to defend themselves,” he added. Third, have patience and work hard. Vincent predicted that The Bureau of Prisons will not house the Madoff’s in the same institution. “So they will have no immediate allies,” he said. “If the general attitude around the prison is to avoid the Madoff’s then no inmate will want to be seen being friendly with them, but over time that may change,” he said. “Andrew and Mark will also have to work hard at whatever jobs that the prison assigns them to work,” added Oberfest. “They will be closely watched by the other inmates to see how they hold up to real work. If they don’t pull their weight they will definitely hear about it from the other inmates,” he said. “If I were either one of them I would be on the phone calling Steven or me today,” said Vincent.
