 He deserves to lose everything he owns and have a life of misery in jail.

His investors didn't lose any money in the end. I thing they even made some profit of him. So, he is basically being convicted of @$$holism.

The Wu-Tang Clan album is no loss. One copy, in translations, it sucks

"For the first time during the trial, Shkreli expressed remorse following the judge’s ruling on Monday, promising Matsumoto that he would be “more careful, open and honest” if “granted mercy in sentencing…”"

He represents what is putrid about the corporate corrupt White House and its corporate corrupt politicians.

Just found this. Shkreli, who bought the only copy of the Wu-Tang Clan’s 2015 Once Upon a Time in Shaolin for $2m, made good on his promise to leak excerpts from the album in celebration of Donald Trump’s shock victory in the American presidential election. In the end, he might get a pardon

Everything this guy does tells me he is crying inside. His attention seeking behavior signifies a deep insecurity.

US prosecutors recommended Tuesday that Judge Kiyo Matsumoto sentence Shrkeli to at least 15 years in prison during his sentencing hearing on Friday.

It would be interesting to see how much harsher his sentence ends up being than the sentence of other 'nameless' criminals that have been charged with the same or similar offences. The kind of publicity he has had is sure to sway even the most neutral of judges and juries.

This is the real story. How he raised the prices of the drugs his company bought by some 5,000 percent. And for everything, he's shown zero remorse. That is until he was found guilty and is awaiting sentencing. They he started pleading for mercy and promising to be a good boy. He's a complete tool. A corporate sociopath. 10-20 years is definitely warranted. We'll find out on the 9th when he's sentenced.

Let him cry on the outside for a change. I admit my limits on empathizing with criminals get tighter with the extent of arrogance demonstrated by said criminals. 

 

PS What @TraderTate said. Nicely put.

I think they would have had a hard time giving him more than 7 years, just because there have been a lot of worse cases, as SafeHaven points out. Loved the journalist-in-the-courtroom play-by-play. Box of tissues for Marty, etc. Tears.

He put a bounty on Hillary's hair because it was during her presidential campaign that the whole attack on greedy pharma started. She made the fight against pharma company's doing things like jacking the price of a drug up 5,000%. So Shkreli in many ways owes his incarceration to her.

Let's not pretend this sentence is any semblance of objective justice. He's an arrogant sociopath, sure. But charging exorbitant prices for a drug he purchased isn't illegal. It's scummy and disgusting, sure. But are we really willing to lower our standards for justice based on subjective measures such as being a tool or a sociopath? Justice is said to be blind; we should think carefully before we decide to give her the gift of sight. Juxtapose Elizabeth Holmes' fate alongside Martin Shkreli's:

Martin Shkreli - 7 years, $7.5 million fine. Actual Investor Losses = $0

Elizabeth Holmes - Barred from being a director or officer of a company for 10 years; $500,000 fine. Actual Investor Losses = $8,000,000,000.

The difference? The media was far more fawning over one than the other...

They are both frauds that should be in jail. The only difference between them is that one stole rich people's money and another stole from the poor and sick.
