‘Pharma bro’ Martin Shkreli has been found guilty of securities fraud, but escaped conviction on a number of charges, leading him to declare the reault a victory.
With sentencing to follow, Shkreli could face up to twenty years behind bars, but hopes to get off with much less.
Unfortunately for Shkreli, the Judge due to sentence him announced she plans to exercise the monopoly she will hold as the sole official determining how long he will be imprisoned.
“I intend to apply the most exorbitant sentence I feel the market will bear.”
A preliminary survey of the public suggests that number is at least 70,000 years.
