IT’S PAY­BACK TIME, MR WOLF

Herald Sun - - NEWS -

A FED­ERAL judge in New York City wants to make sure the real-life “Wolf of Wall Street” Jor­dan Belfort keeps pay­ing back the $130 mil­lion he owes in resti­tu­tion.

The judge told Belfort’s lawyers at a gar­nish­ment hear­ing that she was fo­cused on get­ting his roughly $130 mil­lion in­vestor resti­tu­tion “back on track” al­most 20 years af­ter his con­vic­tion.

Belfort pleaded guilty to se­cu­ri­ties fraud and money laun­der­ing in 1999.

He has so far paid off about $17 mil­lion of resti­tu­tion.

His lawyer said she was happy to get Belfort on a com­pen­sa­tion sched­ule.

He did not ap­pear in court for the hear­ing.

Belfort was the sub­ject of the 2013 film, The Wolf of

Wall Street, which starred Leonardo Di­Caprio.
