Bernie Madoff raked in over 60 billion dollars from thousands of investors with a large scale Ponzi scheme.

According the New York Post, Madoff's lawyers recently filed a motion in a Manhattan federal court to exit his 150 year prison sentence early. Apparently, the 81 year old prisoner is at that latter stages of a severe kidney disease.

Madoff's lawyers claim he's no threat to anyone and has no history of violence.

The Post reports that he has roughly 18 months to live.
