Prosecutors have described Kevin Trudeau as an "uncontrollable huckster" in urging a federal judge to imprison the TV pitchman for at least 10 years for bilking consumers through widely aired infomercials.
In a court filing in Chicago this week, they blast Trudeau as "an unrepentant, untiring and uncontrollable huckster." They add the 50-year-old is even likely to cheat fellow inmates. Sentencing is March 17.
Jurors convicted Trudeau of criminal contempt in November for violating a judge's order barring him from making false claims about his book, "The Weight Loss Cure They Don't Want You to Know About."
Prosecutors say Trudeau has not only refused to pay a $37 million judgment in a related civil case but bragged about his defiance.
Trudeau attorney Kimball Anderson didn't return a message seeking comment.
