Facebook, Head, and Hillary Clinton: U.S. NEWs PHARMA BRO Mar 09 Martin Shkreli, aka 'Pharma Bro', sentenced to 7 years in prison for federal fraud charges. Martin Shkreli, also known as “Pharma Bro,” was sentenced to seven years in prison for federal fraud charges related to two hedge funds he ran and his former company, Retrophin. Shkreli became infamous for raising the price of the drug Daraprim by more than 5,000 percent while running another of his companies, Turing Pharmaceuticals, but was charged for unrelated crimes. Along with his 7-year conviction, Shkreli has been ordered to forfeit nearly $7.4 million, his ownership of a one-of-a-kind Wu-Tang Clan album, and a Picasso. This is far from the 12-18 months his defense team was arguing for, and includes a three-year probation period and an additional $75,000 fine. ___ Shkreli was convicted on three of eight counts of fraud for to lying to investors, but his behavior out of the courtroom also contributed to the sentencing. After his initial proceedings back in August, Shkreli offered up to $5,000 to any of his online followers who could pluck a hair from Hillary Clinton’s head. Additionally, he wrote on Facebook that if he were to be acquitted, he would pursue sexual relations with a particular female journalist. These two instances caused the judge to revoke his bail, sending him to the Metropolitan Detention Center in Brooklyn where he’s been residing ever since. ___ Photo: Amr Alfiky-Reuters
