Letters From Timothy Durham's Victims Released

Last updated on Wednesday, December 26, 2012

(INDIANAPOLIS) - Almost a month after businessman Timothy Durham was sentenced to 50 years in prison, the federal court has released the hundreds of letters victims sent to the court pleading for justice.

Rafael Sanchez of RTV6 reports that Durham violated the trust of thousands of people who in letters spelled out their fears, frustrations and the financial melt downs they've been facing because of the men convicted of running a so-called Ponzi scheme.

Robart, who lost $40,000, compared Durham to the Grinch in the popular children's book.

Dewayne McVay and his wife Brenda invested the $130,000 life insurance payout with Durham's now-bankrupt Fair Finance. The family received the money when their Marine son was killed.

In court, Judge Jane Magnus Stinson read the letter by 94-year-old Chester Martin, who said, "NOW WHAT? HELP!"

Maria Curk, who survived the Nazi concentration camps, thought she'd seen it all. She lost her retirement money and told the court, "These terrible men took away my peace of mind."

There are many more letters that flooded the federal court in Indianapolis, some typed, others handwritten, with pleas of investors.

When Durham, Cochran and Snow were sentenced to prison last month, the law spoke and the letters were heard.
