Former New York City computer manager Natarajan Venkataram had repeatedly apologized for stealing $10 million from federal grants to help identify the remains of 9/11 victims.

But he wasn’t sorry enough to return more than $400,000 stashed in his bank account in India.

Venkataram — now serving 15 years in federal prison — had actually been fighting in court to try to block authorities from seizing his ill-gotten loot.
