Jury selection begins for trial of 5 ex-Madoff employees

All five have pleaded not guilty to multiple charges

A U.S. district court has begun jury selection for the trial of five ex-employees of Bernie Madoff, including his former personal secretary, two computer programmers, an office worker and the company’s ex-operations chief.

The government believes all five of these five employees worked with Madoff to carry out the largest Ponzi scheme in U.S. history. Multiple Madoff employees have already been charged and arrested, including Madoff’s brother Peter and a company bookkeeper. However, these five employees all claim ignorance to Madoff’s scheme and have pleaded not guilty to all charges against them.
