I accept that I have made mistakes... ha ha what?

''if you find it appropriate to impose a sentence that does not include an extended period of incarceration...''

Now that I know what it's like to do hard time, if you should not send me back to actual jail, that would be great.

He can only feel when it's about himself. During the whole trial, wasn't he smirking and acting like none of it was serious? As if the consequences to others meant nothing because they didn't affect him personally? I'm not sure there is anything you can do about someone like that.

It's too late - he Ebay'd it at the end of last year for around $1mil, which I am happy to add is a 50% loss over the auction bid he won it with.

Nothing more than crocodile tears. As soon as he's let out (if he lives that long), he'll be back to screwing the less fortunate in no time.

Also, he was only convicted for investment fraud. He has not shown any remorse for this role in jacking up the price of a life-saving drug by several hundred percent. He is still a worthless, parasitic excuse for a human being.

Yep - I think they call them psychopaths or at the very least a narcissistic sociopath. They are people in power who have made other peoples lives a living hell just because they weren't in power.

Author Tim Dorsey used him as a character in his latest book "The Pope of Palm Beach". He kills him off in the manner he attempted to kill off all the people who needed the medicine he put out of their reach. It was fantastic! I LMAO.

Interesting: Shkreli must forfeit $7.4 million

Quote:
Martin Shkreli was ordered by a federal judge Monday to forfeit nearly $7.4 million as a result of his fraud convictions last year.

Brooklyn Federal Judge Kiyo Matsumoto said he must give up his one-of-a-kind Wu Tang album, "Once Upon a Time in Shaolin," for which Shkreli reportedly paid $2 million.

In addition to the album, Matsumoto also ordered him to give up a Picasso painting, an album called "The Carter V" by Lil Wayne, and $5 million he posted for bail.

Shkreli was convicted of fraud for deceiving investors and misusing their money while he was a portfolio manager at a hedge fund. He faces sentencing at Brooklyn Federal Court on Friday, and could potentially get up to 20 years in prison.
See now I'm confused, because like I said upthread, I was quite sure Shkreli had sold that Wu-Tang album on Ebay. But now the judge says he has to forfeit it.

I went and double-checked to see if my memory was wrong; but no, the auction happened and the Ebay page with the winning bid is still up.

It took me a bit to figure out what the mix-up here is; but I eventually did. On September 13 of last year, Shkreli was arrested after his stunt where he publicly offered thousands of dollars for a strand of Hillary Clinton's hair, which the judge decided was close enough to solicitation of violence to revoke his bail, and as a result Shkreli has been cooling his heels in a federal Guest House ever since. But the Ebay auction ended on September 15, two days later. So there really was an auction and somebody really did win it, but Shkreli was never able to ship the album to the winner because he was in jail.

I'm a bit surprised he couldn't have asked someone (his lawyer, for example) to handle that for him.

However, it wouldn't surprise me to learn that there are rules against disposing of valuable assets while the court is considering asset forfeiture orders, particularly when the sale price is so much less than the item's original cost.

Even if there aren't, it most definitely wouldn't surprise me to learn that his lawyers had warned him against doing anything else before the sentencing hearing that might further test the judge's patience.

He has to forfeit the proceeds from the auction. In other words, what ever amount it sold for, he has to pay in restitution. Or what ever amount the judge decrees (the $2 million).

"I've got my begging voice on," Shkreli's lawyer Benjamin Brafman told the judge on Friday, while acknowledging his client could be annoying.

"There are times when I want to hug him and hold him and comfort him and there are times when I want to punch him in the face," said Mr Brafman.

Hey, Shkreli: You know what rhymes with Pharma? Karma! It's a bitch, ain't it!

By what I read, he wasn't smirking when his sentence was handed out. He actually cried. Awwww!
