Shkreli Convicted!

https://www.cnbc.com/2017/08/04/phar...raud-case.html

WooHoo Let's hope he gets some decent prison time and maybe a strange disease that only a very expensive pharmaceutical can cure while he's in prison.

He's a despicable, narcissistic asshole that deserves everything he's getting.

Now if he can be joined by all the others who've jacked up prices on medications that have been around for ever [like the epipen and doxyciline], then I'll really be happy.

I also wonder how long he'll go to jail for, and how much money he has stashed away for when he comes out.

Martin Shkreli, 'Pharma Bro,' Goes On Trial For Securities Fraud : The Two-Way : NPR
Quote:
Shkreli's chatter may cost him. His lawyer has argued he "doesn't have any cash," and that his bail should be reduced to $2 million from $5 million, CNBC reports. His ownership stake in Turing Pharmaceuticals, which hiked the price of the drug Daraprim, is worth $30 million to $50 million, but his lawyer says he can't sell it without shareholder approval. (Shkreli resigned as CEO the day after his arrest.)

But prosecutors, Reuters reports, have pointed to recently touted expenditures: a World War II-era code-breaking machine, the only copy of a Lil Wayne album and a Picasso. He also offered $40,000 for a math proof and $100,000 for tips on the killing of DNC staffer Seth Rich.

If Shkreli is dreading his day in court, he isn't showing it. "I'm excited," he told the AP last week. "I can't wait."

He probably won't get any jail time. Those big time white collar criminals never do.

While it's nice to see he got a little comeuppance, but reading the report, my main impression is he won more than he lost. Only three of eight charges stuck and the one with real teeth, that he ransacked his drug company to pay defrauded investors, that was one of the five he avoided.

I don't want to rain on any parades and I am happy he's not getting off completely scott free; it still seems to me, he's gotten away with little more than a slap on the wrist.

He got convicted, but unfortunately not for all of the charges. And certainly not for being a total, irrepressible asshole. Hopefully karma has its way with him. Oh - and if you saw him on the news today: I sincerely hope someone is able to wipe that smug smirk off his fucking face, and keep it from returning for a really long time!

Be respectful. Something Martin Shitlord isn't capable of. It wouldn't surprise me to learn he's been shanked to death in the future.

"I was wrong, I was a fool": "Pharma Bro" Martin Shkreli asks judge for leniency - Chicago Tribune

Quote:
"Pharma Bro" Martin Shkreli admitted that he was "very far from blameless" in a letter to a judge asking for leniency, according to court filings.

"I was wrong, I was a fool. I should have known better," Shkreli wrote in his letter to Brooklyn federal court Judge Kiyo Matsumoto.

"I accept the fact that I made serious mistakes, but I still believe that I am a good person with much potential," Shkreli said.

The brash former pharmaceuticals company CEO was convicted in August of cheating investors in two failed hedge funds. He remains in jail and faces up to 20 years in prison when he is sentenced March 9.
Quote:
"I have learned a harsh lesson. The trial and six months in a maximum security prison has been a frightening wake-up call. I now understand how I need to change."
Quote:
".... if you find it appropriate to impose a sentence that does not include an extended period of incarceration, I will do my absolute best to use my skills and whatever talents I have been blessed with for the betterment of humanity," Shkreli writes.
