Kevin Trudeau is going to Jail

Back in November, TV pitchman, bestselling author and repeat offender Kevin Trudeau was found guilty of criminal contempt after continuing to make fraudulent weight-loss claims in the marketing of his book The Weight Loss Cure “They” Don’t Want You to Know About. Yesterday, they had their final say in the matter, sentencing the fraudster to a decade behind bars.

Sure looks like he’s going to be serving time behind bars.

Look, there’s nothing “They Don’t Want You To Know” about weight loss and health.  There’s no secret diet that melts fat overnight.  There’s no There there, as the saying goes.

Hopefully this is the end of the stream of deceptive books and commercials …. we’ll have to see.
