Okun’s ex-wife set to testify against him

Financier Ed Okun – convicted in a $126 million fraud – may hear from his former wife at his sentencing hearing this week.

The Richmond Times-Dispatch reports that Carol May, who was married to Okun for a brief period in the 1970s, had not heard a word about her ex-husband in several decades.

However, she will be one of several witnesses that the government intends to call for testimony.

The government is seeking a maximum 400-year sentence. Okun’s lawyers argue that due to health problems, just 20 years would amount to a life sentence. They are seeking 10 to 15 years maximum.
