cartier love bracelet 2016 Jackson pleaded to sleep with son

SANTA MARIA, California (CNN) The mother of a boy who alleged Michael Jackson molested him in 1993 testified Monday that she allowed her son to start spending nights alone with the pop star after a sobbing Jackson pleaded with her to let them sleep together.

Taking the stand in Jackson’s child molestation trial, the mother also said that at Jackson’s urging, she signed papers giving custody of the boy to his father, her ex husband, after he raised the possibility of taking legal action against Jackson.

The boy’s family did bring legal action against Jackson, and in 1994 reached a confidential multimillion dollar settlement with him in which he did not admit guilt.

Now 25, the alleged victim will not testify because he does not want to get involved in the media spectacle, his uncle has told CNN.

The 46 year old singer is accused of molesting a different boy now 15 years old at Neverland Ranch, giving him alcohol and conspiring to hold his family captive in 2003.

Jackson has pleaded not guilty to the charges.

Prosecutors are presenting previous allegations against Jackson to try to prove the singer had a pattern of grooming boys for sexual abuse.

First meeting recalledThe mother testified Monday that her son first met Jackson in August 1992, when the performer came to a Los Angeles car rental agency after having car trouble. Her then husband, the boy’s stepfather, worked there, she said.

She said she gave Jackson their phone number and told the entertainer to call "if you’d like to see [him] . or speak to him."

A month or two later, Jackson began calling the boy, in conversations that "got longer and longer," she said. She and her son and daughter began spending weekends at Jackson’s Neverland Ranch starting in February 1993, and he began treating the family to trips to Las Vegas, Disneyland and Florida.

On their third visit to Neverland, she said she refused her son’s request to spend the night with Jackson in his bedroom.

But she relented during a trip to Las Vegas in March 1993, after Jackson whom she described as "sobbing, crying, shaking and trembling" confronted her, she testified.

"You don’t trust me. We’re a family," she quoted the entertainer as saying. "There’s nothing wrong. There’s nothing going on. Why don’t you trust me?"

After 30 to 40 minutes of pleading by Jackson, the mother said she relented, and the two then began sleeping in the same bed on nights when they were together.

For more than 30 consecutive nights, she said Jackson, who was then 34, visited the family’s home in Santa Monica to spend the night with her 13 year old son, left in the morning after he went to school and then returned in the afternoon when he came home, often eating dinner with the family. There was only one bed in the boy’s room, she said.

In May 1993, Jackson took the family with him to the World Music Awards in Monaco, and gave her his credit card to go shopping. He also gave her gifts that included a gold Cartier bracelet, earrings, a necklace and a ring, as well as a $7,000 gift certificate to a Beverly Hills store.

By the fall of 1993, the mother testified she became concerned. Her son had become withdrawn, sullen and "was not wanting to be with us anymore." She said he began dressing like Jackson and was "not as sweet as he normally was."

"[He] was spending too much time with Michael Jackson, and I was upset," she said. "I wanted my son back. . It was getting out of hand."

Ex publicist: Jackson licked boy’s headIn testimony earlier Monday, Jackson’s former publicist reluctantly admitted that he saw Jackson lick the boy’s head when he and his family were on the plane returning from Monaco. A draft of the book obtained by prosecutors contained the licking allegation, but under questioning Monday, Jones initially said he could not recall the episode.

After he was confronted with e mails he sent to Brown that "the licking is going to be important," he conceded that it must have taken place.

"I would not have made it up," he testified Monday.

Prosecutors also called Brown to the stand. He said he had several conversations with Jones in which he talked about seeing Jackson lick the boy’s head on during the Monaco trip, but he said Jones’ recollections later became "fuzzy."

And under cross examination by defense attorney Thomas Mesereau Jr., Brown said Jones’ recollections about the incident seemed to change with his finances that he had a better memory of seeing the licking when he needed money and a fuzzier memory when he didn’t.

Jones and Brown have written a book titled "The Man Behind The Mask" that is currently being edited by their publisher, with a final draft expected in six to eight weeks, Jones said.

Asked if the book was an accurate depiction of his experiences working for Jackson, Jones said, "It’s factual to a degree," going on to explain that Brown had included things of which he did not approve.

Prosecutor Gordon Auchincloss introduced excerpts from a manuscript of the book, in which Jones described Jackson and the boy "holding each other tightly" while sleeping on the return trip from Monaco in an "almost romantic embrace," with "cooing" and licks on the head.

cartier love bangle 17 Lauren Ezersky Explains Her Style

Could somebody please take a stand towards the return of connoisseurship to fashion by bringing back Lauren’s "Behind the Velvet Ropes" and immediately rid us of the intolerable inanity of Joan Rivers and Guiliana Rancic on "The Fashion Police"?

It’s time to raise the bar and bring back soul to the curation of "what" is taste with someone like Lauren, who wore a turban with an armful of bangles to one of her first job interviews and today has earrings running up her ear in the vein of an African queen. Lauren gets what it is to be an original and therefore has the ability to respect one. She was the first to do a cable show that delved into the true art of fashion, but it came from a sincere interest in the creativity and mind of a person and less about "who is wearing what."

She says, "I talked to everyone. I was in the cab talking to the cab driver on my way to an interview with Isaac Mizrahi." With a true passion for individualism, Lauren’s style is prolific and anything but derivative and she is all about pieces that don’t change and become your signature, like her RRL leather pants and corduroy equestrian blazer.

If Lauren gets a pair of jeans they are the real 5 pocket ones, her moccasins are handmade and she loves the classicism of vintage lingerie. However, it is her jewelry collection and how she wears it, everything from diamond skulls to Native American, mixed with Cartier bangles piled high that is of epic originality. Lauren says that she is a work in progress, "no matter how old I get I am going to try something different. A different haircut, a different hair color, different dogs."

To be comfortable and honest with one’s evolution, and to embrace "difference" is the spirit of a true artist and worthy of being celebrated. To be frozen in face and opinion is not. Fran Lebowitz says in her recent documentary, "Public Speaking," the level of the arbiter is as important to art as art itself.

love bracelet gold statements can be subtle or quite bold

For Valentine’s Day, would be cupids will likely attempt to send pulses racing with jewelry that’s red or shaped like a heart.

"In most jewelry stores, including ours, the heart is by far the most prominent design, not just for Valentine’s Day but year round," says Jo Ellen Qualls, vice president and store manager of Tiffany Co. in South Coast Plaza. "People love hearts, and I think they always will."

One of the most famous is the often copied open heart designed by Elsa Peretti for Tiffany. The simple heart, which appears to float on a chain, has become a classic.

"Elsa designed it in 1976, and it’s still the best selling heart in our company. At one time it was the most worn piece of jewelry in the world," Qualls says. "It’s still our No. 1 best selling single item at Tiffany."

One reason for the open heart’s success: It comes in gold or silver and in six different sizes, from a dainty mini heart of sterling ($40) to a large gold heart on a 36 inch chain ($1,595).

"The simplicity and purity of the design appeals to people," Qualls says.

Italian jeweler Bvlgari, which recently opened a store in South Coast Plaza, has sleek, heart shaped earrings of gold and a variety of semiprecious stones, including a pure turquoise pair ($2,900), purple amethyst ($5,500) and green tourmaline ($6,900).

Watches with hearts or with red bands are also hot this time of year. Tourneau in South Coast Plaza has everything from Cartier’s "Diablo" style watch with a pave diamond bezel and a red crocodile band ($16,700) to Tourneau’s casual "Safari" style with a red lizard band ($225). Perhaps the most elaborate of the jeweler’s romantic watches is Baum Mercier’s timepiece with a red crocodile band, a diamond bezel and pave diamond bows, and a cabachon ruby center to mark the 6 and 12 o’clock hours.

Tourneau often sells watches by the pair for Valentine’s Day. Many come in his and hers versions.

One can find Valentine’s jewelry at all prices. Apropos in Fashion Island Newport Beach offers assorted cupids and hearts, including heart earrings paved in red crystals for $78, engraved silver heart lockets ($75 to $110) and two tone sterling and brass hearts with cupid faces ($38).

cartier bangle pink Celebrities are no stranger to Town Center at Boca Raton

Town Center at Boca Raton is one of the most affluent malls in America featuring stores such as Cartier, Louis Vuitton, Tiffany Co. and Neiman Marcus. But it’s a little known fact that it’s also been a magnet for famous faces. Feb. 19, a familiar mall security guard popped up at Town Center at Boca Raton in front of the David Yurman store. Comedian/actor Kevin James, dressed in full Paul Blart garb, was filming scenes for the "Paul Blart: Mall Cop 2" trailer, which is slated to hit theaters nationwide April 17. James rolled passed Lululemon Athletica on his iconic Segway, which is Blart’s preferred method of transportation.

As mall employees and shoppers looked on in amazement that James was really "working" in the mall, Boca Raton Police encouraged everyone to move along so James could film without distractions.

It may seem odd to see a celebrity in the middle of Town Center at Boca Raton. But after all this is the place where famous people’s parents come to spend their golden years. However, over the years, Town Center at Boca Raton has had its share of celebrity shoppers.

I spotted Andy Roddick shopping for jeans and T shirts with his friends at Abercrombie and Fitch in during his days dating Mandy Moore, which was circa 2003. During that time, Roddick was residing in Boca Pointe and I would often see him at the Starbucks and Einstein Bros. Bagels on the corner of Powerline and Palmetto Park roads.

I saw football player Zach Thomas in front of Yankee Candle shopping with his wife and kids just before Christmas. Several years ago, actor Paul Sorvino popped into Skechers. My friend who was working there at the time said she didn’t recognize him until he she saw the name on his coveted American Express Centurion Card aka the black card when he paid for his shoes.

And let’s not forget the dozens of scheduled appearances stars made over the years. The late "Wizard of Oz" munchkin Margaret Pellegrini came for a meet and greet with fans around 2004.

While I can’t remember the specific date, I did almost lose my mind once running into Michael Kors in 2006 at Saks Fifth Avenue. He had just released a collection of ready to wear camouflage bags and I confessed to him I had spent my entire paycheck on it. Yes, those were the days.

On Dec. 4, 2008, Dwyane Wade, Alonzo Mourning and DJ Irie hosted a private charity event at the Louis Vuitton store. On Jan. 1, 2010, designer Betsey Johnson made an appearance in the Nordstrom end of the mall to open her now closed store.

Wentworth Gallery in Town Center Boca Raton has also attracted A listers for in store appearances. Rosie O’Donnell did a meet and greet with fans and displayed her art work there April 18, 2009 and Paul Stanley of Kiss also showed his art work there and met with fans in March 2010.

On Nov. 10, 2011, Richard Lambertson and John Truex came to Tiffany Co., to introduce their new handbag and accessories line for the posh jewelry store. On Dec. 3, 2012, Stella McCartney made an appearance at Saks Fifth Avenue to show fans her 2013 collection. Jonathan Adler and Simon Doonan illuminated the second floor of Neiman Marcus in Boca on March 21, 2013 helping customers pick out handbags from his latest collection.

cartier love bangle rose gold Best Airports For Layovers In America CBS Cleveland

Let’s face it, no one truly enjoys a layover, regardless of its length or location. However, flight connections are a fact of life and for most travelers, an inevitability. If you have a long layover, you might have enough time to get out of the airport and see some of the top local attractions. But if leaving the airport isn’t a possibility, here is a look at five of the best airports for layovers in America.

Because Dallas/Fort Worth is one of the world’s busiest airports, you can expect to have a near endless supply of choices for dining and shopping. Second only to Denver as the largest airport in the country, DFW has five terminals, with bidirectional train services running every two minutes between terminals. Families on a layover with children may wish to visit one of the Aquafina Junior Flyers Clubs at Terminal A near Gate A13, Terminal B near Gate B12 and at Terminal C near Gate C14. An additional children’s play area can be found in Terminal D near Gate D33. But DFW is also highly regarded for its outstanding and diverse selection of food options, like Pizza Vino, Fuddruckers Hamburgers and the always popular Texas Stadium Skybox Bar and Grill. Suggested stores to browse for magazines, clothing and jewelry include Natalie’s Sweet Gourmet, DFW News and the Dallas Cowboys Pro Shop. Active military personnel and their families can also visit USO DFW, featuring computers with wireless access, a TV lounge with large screen TVs, a cafe and a sleeping room.

Voted the best airport in North America multiple times, Denver International Airport is also routinely mentioned among the best for a layover. Part of what helps makes Denver more tolerable than many other airports is its Art and Culture Program, featuring impressive works of art exhibitions and a permanent collection, voted the best airport for art in a recent readers poll. Denver airport also has more than 140 shops, restaurants and other services, in addition to free public Wi Fi. Among the best restaurants and quick bites to try are Colorado Sports Bar, Elway’s,Root Down DIA and Einstein Brothers Bagels. If you still have time, take a walk around Jeppesen Terminal, where trips around the terminal is one mile. Lastly, but certainly not least, try to go outside to get a view of the multi peaked roofs of Jeppesen Terminal, resembling the Colorado Rockies.

If you’re flying to Europe, there’s a good chance you’ll have a layover in New York’s John F. Kennedy International Airport. That’s because JFK is the busiest international air passenger gateway in the country. Fortunately, you have plenty of options for food, drinks and shopping in all six terminals. Popular food choices are New York favorites, such as Shake Shack and the Palm Bar and Grille. Trains connecting each terminal run frequently, with 24 hour service and the Jamaica Train connecting to subway and rail service to Brooklyn, Queens and Manhattan. A glimpse of shopping choices in Terminal 1 may surprise first time visitors with high profile names like Cartier, Bulgari and Salvatore Ferragamo featuring retail stores in post security areas. For conveniences like soft drinks, snacks and magazines, the familiar Hudson News stores can be found all over JFK.

If you’re stuck on a layover at California busiest airport but not long enough to leave the area, you can still find plenty of things to do at LAX. Although the Encounter Restaurant closed in 2013, you can still visit the iconic LAX Theme Building and its observation deck, with sweeping views of the downtown skyline. If you want to browse the internet, LAX has free Wi Fi, although premium access comes with a fee for either hourly or 24 hours. As you would expect, there are many choices for dining, primarily in the Great Hall Food Court, along with duty free shops and stores like Bulgari, Coach and Emporio Armani all in the Great Hall. Lastly, even if you are just lounging around, there’s always a possibility you might spot a celebrity passing through the airport. All you would have do to is just look for a gaggle of photographers.

With Hong Kong, Tokyo and other Asian cities among the top destinations, some visitors can expect to have a layover at SFO. Luckily, travelers can keep themselves busy using the airport’s free Wi Fi, grab something to eat or even visit an attraction not found in most other major domestic airports. While public art is on display at many airports, SFO has a museum and and public art scattered across all five terminals. The Aviation Museum and Library is located pre security at the International Terminal Main Hall and is open to the public with no admission fee. One interesting San Francisco related exhibition on display through March is "When Art Rocked," a collection of the psychedelic rock posters advertising upcoming music concerts at iconic venues such as the Fillmore West and Avalon Ballroom. SFO also has a yoga room in Terminal 2, along with a nice variety of dining, including local favorites Boudin Bakery, Buena Vista Caf and Lori’s Diner, along with stores like Burberry, Coach and the SFMOMA Museum Store.

cartier bracelet screwdriver tradition is strong

At first glance, it seems that engagement and wedding rings seldom change over the years. But look closer. While most couples shy away from trendy styles for something classic, a lot of subtle differences exist in cut, color, shape and pattern. The perfect ring can be an antique reproduction, a glittering pav band or a traditional three stone setting. It can be a sparkling sapphire or a dazzling diamond, surrounded by an intricate sculptural pattern or showcased in a simple, elegant setting. Whatever it looks like, most brides know the right ring when they try it on because it takes their breath away. "Texans especially like new and different, but different is not enough," says , who recently opened Shaftel Diamonds in Rice Village. "It has to be different and spectacular."

While a round diamond is still the most popular pick, brides are opting for other shapes including rectangular emerald cuts, oval and Princess cuts (a sparkling square).

While diamonds are still far and away the most popular gem, some brides are choosing color with blue or pink sapphires, green emeralds and other candy colored solitaires.

Bigger is better. at Deutsch Deutsch says couples are putting more emphasis on the center stone. "Down the road they can add side stones if they want," he says.

Look for more ornate choices. You’ll find them shaped like crescents, half moons, trapezoids and shields, notes a Bailey Banks Biddle representative.

A Cartier representative says some couples purchase eternity rings to wear at less formal events when their oversize diamonds might seem out of place.

The newest Bulgari Venice collection was inspired by an ancient document recording the first diamond engagement ring, which commemorated a 1503 marriage in the Italian city.

love bracelet 18 More about swan poop than you ever cared to know

A spouse who is co owner of a boutique so that instead of ever having to take the time and emotional energy to purchase a gift, I can just say, "Go to Spouse’s boutique and pick out anything you want and I’ll pay for it, happy birthday."Mauricio apparently told Lisa Rinna that she should just go over to Kyle’s store and pick whatever she wanted out for her birthday, and Lisa Rinna was all, "DONE AND DONE." This also gives the ladies an opportunity to discuss an upcoming trip to the Hamptons and how Lisa Rinna had a boutiqueonce, too, but then it was broken into 3 times in 6 weeks because HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA, WHAT?

Over at PINK HOUSE, Lisa Vanderpump’s Vanderswan Hanky has diarrhea and so she grabs the bird and HOLDS HIM IN HER LAP TO DRIVE HIM TO THE VET. After all, what’s the worst that could happen? But aside from that poor decision 1. Lisa Vanderpumpthinks one of her random Vanderpet’s stomach disordersis something we would be interested in 2. enough to drag a camera crew along with her to the Vandervet’s office. It would be one thing if the vet were like, "WE HAVE TO OPERATE! IT’S AN EMERGENCY!" But instead, the vet tells Lisa that the Vanderswan isfine and she should take him home. Literally, that is all that happens. The only thing that is slightly revelatory in this entire episode is that Lisa declares that she loves things more when they are dependent upon her which is pretty much her guiding philosophy forall of her relationships.

So Yoyawnda may have parasites ravaging her brain (or whatever), but she is not a dumb woman. Instead of just dumping Erika Girardi into the viper’s pit that is this cast, she opts to ease Erika into the group by introducing her to Kyle first, based on the idea that the two womenhave a lot in common.

After Kyle pretends for a hot second that she didn’t immediately Google Erika’s name upon learning she was joining the cast, and feigns surprise to learn Erika is a "performer," the ladies begin talking about Yoyawnda’s upcoming trip to Cleveland to have her leaking breast implants removed. Why she has to go all the way to Cleveland to have this done is unclear: maybeBeverly Hills only has surgeons who know how to put inthe implants, not take them out? Anyway, Yoyawnda warns that silicone implants and Botox will be the death of Kyle and Erika, who are like, "DON’T CARE."

Yoyawnda mentions in passing that her children, The Boy One and The One Who Isn’t Gigi, both have Lyme Disease, too. Kyle is like, "wait, what now? How can three people in the same family have Lyme Disease?" Yoyawnda explains that before moving to Malibu, they practically lived on a horse ranch where theywere exposed to plenty of ticks, so yes, they have Lyme Disease too; no, it’s not Munchausen by Proxy. "LOL, OK," says Kyle.

Elsewhere, Lisa Rinna gets waxed.

Dear Producers: Lisa Rinna receiving a bikini wax is even less of a story than "one of Lisa Vanderpump’s random pets has the runs." Please, please, PLEASE quit wasting our time with this. Unless Lisa Rinna later develops some sort of hideous adverse reaction to having the hairs along her pubis ripped out atthe root by a disinterested Asian woman, this was not TV worthy. Thanks.

Later, Kyle and Lisa Vanderpump meet Eileen at The Young the Restless set to I don’t even know what. Sit in Eileen’s claustrophobic dressing room, read a script, talk about how they are going to meet this Erika person later that afternoon, and then talk about how Lisa Rinna was talking about how other people were talking about Yoyawnda’s health?

Is anything actually going to happen this season or are we just going to worry about bikini waxes, Vanderpets and talk about other people talking about things?

So, the ladies finally get together (sans Lisa Rinna) to meet this Erika Girardi character, who makes the grievous error of wearing pink high heels in Lisa Vanderpump’s presence.

Erika also flashes around a Cartier ring worth around $189,000, which Kyle helpfully compares to a Lamborghini, and not, say, the median price of the American home,becauseeveryoneon this show has a super healthyperspective.

Speaking of health, at some point, someone asks Yoyawnda how she’s doing, and Yoyawnda is all, "NOT GREAT, BOB."

Kyle mentions that she just learned that Yoyawnda’s kids also have Lyme Disease, and Yoyawnda begins explaining that this is why The Other One Who Isn’t Gigi dropped out of school. (Sure it is.)It’s her children, Yoyawnda explains, that keeps her fighting for a cure. And if that cure requires Yoyawnda to get stem cell replacement therapy in other countries, take selfies in hypobaric chambers, get IV drips of Airborneand drink gallons of lemon juice and cayenne pepper, then so be it. However, all this talk about Lyme Disease makes Kyle worry that she has Lyme Disease, even though that is not how Lyme Disease works, Kyle.

At some point, the ladies invite this Erika person to join them on their upcoming Hampton’s trip, and Erika accepts, noting that as soon as she’s done "performing" in Chicago she’ll jump on her plane and fly over. This leads to a discussion of Erika’s career, such as it is, and her relationship to her much older husband. The ladies don’t exactly play it cool when they learn Mr. Girardi is Larry King old.

But, again, 1. there is NO WAY they didn’t do their research on this talking Barbie as soon as she signed her Bravo contract, and 2. they live in BEVERLY HILLS; do you mean to tell me this is the first couple they’ve ever met with a 30 year age difference? Come on now.

Lisa Vanderpump demands to know what it’s like to have sex with a 76 year old AS IF SHE DOESN’T ALREADY VANDERKNOW, and this opens up the conversation about Grandpa Ken’s magical hat birthday party. Lisa complains about Taylor "yacking," and Yoyawnda saysthat she heard something about this, that Taylor had been suggesting to people that Yoyawnda really isn’t sick. But then! Dumb dummy Eileen says something about how Lisa Rinna had a conversation with someone who thought Yoyawnda’s condition wasn’t real, which is NOT WHAT THEY WERE TALKING ABOUT, EILEEN. THEY WERE TALKING ABOUT TAYLOR, EILEEN. This obviously comes as news to Yoyawnda who is like, "wait, Lisa Rinna what now?" And everyone gets really nervous.

But Yoyawnda doesn’t have time for this right now, and merely sighs disappointedly, so, way to go Eileen.

Finally, we go to Yoyawnda’s Malibu home where Gigi is making a giant pot of tomato soup and what she keeps calling "grilled cheese dippers" instead of de crusted grilled cheese sandwiches cut into tiny bite sized pieces that models can nibble on, which is what they are. The children then, for some reason, haul this pot of soup up to the top of lemon hill where their mother is forcing them to have lunch with her and their grandmother. There, Yoyawnda informs the children that in the event something goes wrongon the operating table next week, she’s tucked her will in her safe, and she expects her children to take care of her mother and brother for her. Her kids are like, "I’m sorry, what? Are you going to die? Just how dangerous is it to remove breast implants? Are we missing something?"

love bracelet men Should he be free on bail

NEW YORK A debate has been raging in New York over the fact that Bernard Madoff remains free on bail, spending his days in his luxury Manhattan penthouse despite being accused of the largest financial fraud in history. But the push to jail the disgraced financier may have another, hidden purpose: Payback for his decision to stop cooperating.

Madoff, despite a dramatic confession during his arrest, has quit talking about how the money was collected and where it went, hampering the investigation and killing any incentive to give him a break on bail, officials familiar with the case said Wednesday. The officials spoke on condition of anonymity because the probe was at a sensitive stage. "The attempt to put him in jail is a way to ratchet up the pressure to resume cooperating."

The issue of whether the former Nasdaq chairman should be allowed to remain under house arrest in his $7 million penthouse made headlines this week when prosecutors made a sudden appearance in court and accused him of violating his bail conditions by mailing jewelry and watches worth more than $1 million to relatives and friends.

The heirlooms included at least 16 watches, a jade necklace, an emerald ring, four diamond brooches, two sets of cufflinks, a diamond bracelet and other assorted jewelry from brands like Cartier and Tiffany.

Prosecutors claimed that by moving assets that could end up being used to compensate his victims, Madoff was a risk to the community an argument normally reserved for violent offenders.

"Typically when a white collar defendant is arrested, the ability to commit fraud disappears," said Anthony Barkow, executive director of the Center on the Administration of Criminal Law at New York University School of Law. "When you’re accused of a crime of violence or of being a terrorist, if you’re out on the street, you can hurt people because that’s just what you do."

But he noted that this case was one of a kind. "Typically your fraud defendant defrauds people nobody knows. The wreckage this guy caused is astounding," he said.

Though past big name defendants in white collar cases typically have remained free before trial, the decision to free the 70 year old Madoff on bail has stirred up controversy.

"Every second that Bernard Madoff passes in his penthouse an aerie financed by perhaps the greatest theft of all time is a gross affront to equal justice in America," the New York Daily News wrote on Wednesday. The newspaper is owned by one of Madoff’s alleged victims, real estate magnate Mortimer Zuckerman.

Madoff’s lawyer, Ira Sorkin, has confirmed that his client is not cooperating beyond agreeing to a freeze on his assets. He has argued that mailing the personal items was a harmless mistake, and that his client shouldn’t be punished for it.

Sorkin said that on Christmas Eve, Madoff "gathered a number of watches that he had collected over the course of years, knowing that, due to the sudden change in his circumstances, he would never have an occasion to wear these watches again."

"To Mr. and Mrs. Madoff, the value of these items was purely sentimental," Sorkin wrote in a court filing Wednesday.

No ruling on the bail is expected until sometime after noon Thursday. Attorney Marc Litt said the Bail Reform Act of 1984 made it clear that Congress meant the need for "safety of the community" to be protected by bail conditions was meant to be broadly interpreted.

"Courts have, therefore, appropriately construed the statute to find that protection of the community from economic harm is a valid objective of bail conditions," the prosecutor wrote.

Litt argued that Madoff needs to be imprisoned before trial because his decision to mail jewelry and other family heirlooms showed that he is unwilling to obey a previous court order that his assets not be touched.

"The scope of the defendant’s crime is vast, and it is likely that thousands of victim investors have lost sums in the billions of dollars," Litt wrote.

From the start, Madoff’s case has been like no other.

Prosecutors, the Securities and Exchange Commission and investors seemed to have little or no inkling that anything was amiss for decades as Madoff delivered steady returns between 8 percent and 12 percent in the best and worst of years.

At an initial court appearance on Dec. 11, a magistrate judge let Madoff go home on $10 million bail secured only by the signatures of Madoff and his wife. Prosecutors agreed to the relatively light treatment without complaint.

By Dec. 17, Madoff was unable to get two of the required four co signers of his bond. As a result, a magistrate judge tightened bail conditions to include home detention with electronic monitoring, imposition of a curfew and a posting of properties in the Hamptons and Palm Beach, Fla.

Two days later, Madoff agreed to a request by prosecutors for further conditions to reduce the risks of harm or flight. As a result, Madoff was confined to his apartment 24 hours per day with a private guard paid for by Madoff’s wife.

David Apfel, a former federal prosecutor now practicing white collar defense in Boston, noted that the whole issue is essentially moot when you consider how hard it would be for him to flee at this point.
