CHICAGO (AP) — A federal judge on Monday sentenced TV pitchman Kevin Trudeau to 10 years in prison for bilking consumers via infomercials for his best-selling weight loss book.

U.S. District Judge Ronald Guzman blasted the 50-year-old Trudeau before the sentencing, saying that for decades he "steadfastly attempted to cheat others for his own personal gain." Guzman called Trudeau "deceitful to the core."

Minutes before, Trudeau apologized to the court and said he was a changed man. Trudeau has been jailed since November, when jurors convicted him of criminal contempt for defying a 2004 court order barring him from running false ads about the book. Despite the order, Trudeau aired the infomercials at least 32,000 times, according to prosecutors.

Prosecutors had said they could think of no comparable case of someone cheating people so brazenly, and they had said Trudeau deserved a sentence of at least 10 years. Defense attorneys said Trudeau deserved no more than two years.

Never delude yourself into thinking you're "influencing" or making a difference on the internet. It is an ephemeral pleasure.
