(Newser) – At least ten more people are likely to be charged as the probe into Bernard Madoff's massive fraud continues, an insider tells AP. The only other person charged so far has been Madoff's accountant. The source declined to say whether the other people likely to face federal charges are relatives or former employees of the shamed financier, who was slapped with a 150-year sentence yesterday.
