Perp Walk of the Decade

New York ( TheStreet)-- The most memorable people on Wall Street are not always the Dimons or Buffetts, but are more often on the front of national newspapers being led into police cars in handcuffs. They are the Gordon Gekkos of Wall Street, and the decade was full of them.

Between 2000 and 2010 some of the largest Ponzi schemes, insider trading rings and white collar crimes that caused the fall of some of the largest companies. The greed exposed during crimes over the past ten years eventually lead to more transparency, better accounting rules and enhanced regulatory oversight.

To commemorate how far we've come since the beginning of the decade we've put together a slideshow of the most memorable perp walks of this decade and where these individuals are now. Let's hope history does not repeat itself.
