Richard Dietrich, a senior technician at International Business Machines Corp., analyzed the computers that were seized from Bernie Madoff’s Midtown Manhattan office and is a prosecution expert witness.

According to Yahoo News, the attorney representing computer programmer Jerome O’Hara, warned jurors to beware of the government’s star witness and Madoff’s former finance chief, Frank DiPascali. He gave a comparison saying that he was such an architect of the fraud that his blaming other Madoff employees would be like “the Big Bad Wolf getting on the witness stand and condemning Little Red Riding Hood.” If convicted on all charges, Jerome O’Hara and George Perez face 30 years behind bars.
