Bernie Madoff in Handcuffs
Elizabeth Williams, an artist whose skills were honed by decades in the courtroom, showed her journalist's sense in U.S. District Court for Southern District of New York in Manhattan. After Bernard Madoff had entered his plea, she lingered long enough to see him handcuffed and led away by officers. Madoff had taken more than $64 billion in assets from investors through his Ponzi scheme. Williams later said of the drawing. " . . . I knew that was what everybody wanted to see. It wasn't a great drawing or anything; it was more like a great moment."
