NEW YORK (CNNMoney.com) -- A man who claims to be the "Godfather of Spam" has been sentenced to
51 months in prison by a federal judge in Detroit for his lead role in an e-mail stock scam scheme, according
to court documents.

The man's history as a prolific spammer dates back to 1997. Before the Bush administration passed a law to
crack down on e-mail marketers in 2003, he reportedly sent 70 million messages a day from fake names.
