Kevin Trudeau, the TV pitchman known for authoring books on natural cures and weight-loss remedies – “they don’t want you to know about,” has been sentenced to a staggering ten years in prison after a judge found him in contempt of court over his refusal to comply with previous orders to pay a $37.6 million fine.

Clearly frustrated U.S. District Judge Ronald Guzman cited Trudeau’s history of fraud, saying in his ruling,

“He has treated federal court orders as if they were mere suggestions… or at most impediments to be sidestepped, outmaneuvered or just ignored… That type of conduct simply cannot stand.”

Trudeau pleaded with the judge saying he regretted his past actions promising to be a “better person” in the future, but the judge was preconditioned by higher powers to lock him up and throw away the key..

Many of Trudeau’s fans are crying foul saying the author was really sent to prison over his theories of curing disease, that usually went against conventional methods.
