Madoff brother given 10 years

■ Peter Madoff will serve 10 years in prison for his role in his brother’s multibillion-dollar Ponzi scheme, a judge in the US said yesterday. Peter Madoff, 67, pleaded guilty in June to criminal charges including conspiracy to commit securities fraud for falsifying the books and records of the investment advisory company founded by his brother, Bernard Madoff. He agreed at the time not to oppose a request by prosecutors for a maximum 10-year prison sentence.
