Television pitchman Kevin Trudeau was sentenced to 10 years in prison Monday after a judge found him guilty of violating a 2004 federal court ruling that required him to stop misrepresenting his weight loss techniques. He was already in custody at the time of his sentencing.
Earlier this month, Munyon & Sons liquidated Trudeau’s Ojai estate, which featured lavish furniture and antiques. The home was also sold. The total amount raised from the liquidation was not released.
Reuters quoted U.S. District Court Judge Ronald Guzman as saying Trudeau was “deceitful to the very core.”
