Appeals Court Upholds Pharma Douche’s Conviction

CNBC reports:

A federal appeals court on Thursday upheld the criminal conviction of notorious “pharma bro” Martin Shkreli. The three-judge panel in the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Second Circut also upheld the more than $6.4 million in foreiture that a judge imposed on Shkreli last year when she sentenced him for his conviction on two counts of securities fraud and one count of conspiracy to commit securities fraud.

Shkreli’s appeals lawyer, Mark Baker, told CNBC, “We’re obviously disappointed, and we will consider and weigh whatever remedies are available.” Shkreli, 36, is serving a seven-year sentence in a federal prison. On the heels of his trial, Judge Kiyo Matsumoto revoked his $5 million bond after she found he was a danger to the public for his offer of a cash bounty for strands of hair from Hillary Clinton’s head that his followers were able to grab.
