Five former workers of disgraced financier Bernie Madoff were convicted of conspiracy Monday in a Manhattan federal court following a six-month trial, the first of its kind in the wake of the historic $68 billion fraud that came to light in 2008.

The former associates found guilty of aiding Madoff in his crimes were Annette Bongiorno, Madoff's longtime secretary.
