Furthermore, Judge Matsumoto ruled in February that, for the purposes of sentencing, Shkreli was liable for almost $10.5 million in losses incurred by his investors. He had already been in prison for six months during the trial and will receive credit for that time.
"What motivates Martin Shkreli is his own image", Kasulis said. "He can't just be an average person who fails, like the rest of us". During the trail, the judge, Matsumoto, was forced to order Shkreli to stop talking after he walked into a room full of reporters and called the prosecutors the "JV team".
Not long after the Daraprim mess, Shkreli was arrested by the Federal Bureau of Investigation and charged with securities fraud for his mismanagement of two hedge funds, which were apparently a big ol' Ponzi scheme.
The judge ruled earlier that Shkreli would have to forfeit more than $7.3 million in a brokerage account and personal assets, including a one-of-a-kind Wu-Tang Clan album that he boasted of buying for $2 million.
The judge insisted that the punishment was not about Shkreli's online antics or his raising the cost of the drug.
Shkreli stoked his notoriety by stonewalling federal lawmakers at a hearing and later tweeting they were "imbeciles".
"I made serious mistakes but I still believe that I am a good person with much potential".
He was convicted on August 5, 2017 of securities fraud and conspiracy in what prosecutors said amounted to a Ponzi scheme.
While Shkreli was growing a beard and drawing the ire of prosecutors, his former lawyer went to trial.
In pleading for a short sentence, Shkreli's defense attorney, Benjamin Brafman, portrayed Shkreli as a misunderstood genius suffering from depression and anxiety conditions.
"Shkreli uses the letter to shift blame for his actions elsewhere - to his victims, to the government, to others he has encountered on social media, and to "demons who haunted me", the prosecutors argued in asking for a 15-year sentence. It's unclear if Shkreli, who Judge Matsumoto said has a net worth of $US27 million ($35 million), still plans to "make paper" while serving his sentence. He apologized and said: "I was wrong". Shkreli became known as "Pharma Bro" for ratcheting up the price of HIV drug Daraprim by 5,000%.
Shkreli has been in jail since September, when Matsumoto revoked his bail after he offered his social media followers $5,000 if they could bring him a hair from former United States presidential candidate Hillary Clinton.
He also praised Le Pen's vision of a political spectrum that is no longer left- right but nationalists versus globalists. Every day, we become stronger and they become weaker. "Today's politics can not be summed up by the left-right divide".
