    Its about time! Can't believe it has taken this long for the law to catch up to him. So many stories out there about his fraud.

      Wait....there were people who "invested" with Marty in a ticket brokering business?

      And you thought that was a good idea because.........?

      Marty did change the game in Des Moines around sports radio years ago. He was interesting. But investing with him? Uh....no.
      Winning is more fun than losing.

        In general it would seem giving money to a radio personality for business reasons would seem like a bad idea................

            Seriously. It is bad enough to be taken by his scam offers, but to invest in the scammer takes it to another level of dumb. Yet, the list of people he duped is impressive.

              DES MOINES, Iowa -- Former Des Moines sports radio host Marty Tirrellcould spend up to 20 years in prison after agreeing to plead guilty to mail fraud in federal court.
              On Wednesday, Tirrell agreed to a plea deal with federal prosecutors in Des Moines before his case went to trial. Tirrell is agreeing to plead guilty to a single count of mail fraud. Nine other counts in his indictment would be dropped by prosecutors.

                He probably won't spend more than 5 in prison. Then he'll probably try to run more scams.

                  Unless something has changed with the federal system, whatever the judge hands down as a sentence is usually what ends up being served. Very little early release / time off for good behavior in the federal system.

                    No parole in the Federal System at all. This is more or less a life sentence for the scumbag and that's perfectly okay.

                      Seems like Marty got off pretty light. Anybody surprised? Not me. Oh well, he still has to live with himself and that is a pretty bad punishment.
