Sobbing "Pharma Bro" Martin Shkreli Sentenced To 7 Years In Prison

"Pharma Bro" Martin Shkreli

Total asshole “Pharma Bro” Martin Shkreli was sentenced to 7 years in prison today for defrauding investors.

Shkreli reportedly sobbed as U.S. District Judge Kiyo Matsumoto announced the prison sentence saying he knew he'd made mistakes and apologized to his investors.

Prosecutors had called for a 15 years in prison while Shkreli's lawyers argued for 18 months or less because his investors in two failed hedge funds got their money back, and their client shouldn’t be punished for being outspoken.

Judge Matsumoto assured the defense team did not take Shkreli's outside actions into account in the sentencing.

The "Pharma Bro" became infamous for jacking up the price of a life-saving AIDS drug by 5,000% from $13 to $750 overnight. That was followed by trolling his many critics on Twitter with his snarky personality.
