10 Millionaire Criminals Who Bought Their Freedom

In May 2001, actor Robert Blake took his wife Bonnie Lee Bakely, out for an Italian dinner. Afterwards, while parked on the side of the street, Bonnie received a fatal gunshot wound to the head. Blake claimed that he re-entered the restaurant to collect a gun that he had left behind when the event occurred. In the coming years, two of his previous stuntmen alleged that Blake had tried to hire them to assassinate his wife. While there wasn’t enough evidence to convict, even his three children are convinced that he was involved and filed a civil lawsuit against him, which reduced his fortune by a whopping $30 million. Although he filed for bankruptcy in 2010, he currently has a net worth of approximately $1.1 million.
