Will he take the risk that his eccentric personality may alienate jurors as he tries to offer an innocent explanation for his investment decisions?All it would take is one sarcastic eye roll, one snooty comment, and that’s it — he will have lost the jurors and his chances for acquittal.Prosecutors say after the funds imploded in 2011, Shkreli took investors’ money without their permission to start Retrophin, and later used $11 million from the drug company to repay the funds’ investors.Prosecutors last week sought to show jurors documents that included what they said were sham Retrophin consulting agreements designed to repay investors who had lost money in Shkreli’s ventures.The defense objected, saying prosecutors should be required to call the investors to the witness stand before introducing the agreements.Brafman indicated in court papers that the defense would welcome Geller’s testimony, saying he provided real consulting services by serving as Shkreli’s “life coach” and made millions of dollars from his investments with Shkreli.
