- Martin Shkreli is found guilty of fraud
By Stephanie Clifford and Colin Moynihan - Friday Aug 4, 2017
NEW YORK — Martin Shkreli, accused of defrauding his hedge fund investors and a pharmaceutical company, was convicted on three of eight counts on Friday, after a five-week trial in U.S. District Court in Brooklyn, N.Y.Shkreli was accused of securities and wire fraud related to two hedge funds he ran, MSMB Capital and MSMB Healthcare.The prosecution brought forth an “avalanche” of evidence, as prosecutor Jacquelyn Kasulis put it in her rebuttal argument, that included a threatening letter he sent to the wife of a former employee, statements he sent to MSMB investors showing great returns at the same time he had no money in fund accounts, three versions of a backdated agreement to make it look as if MSMB Capital had invested in Retrophin when it had not, as well as claims about assets under management that were wildly out of line with his actual fund size.
- Martin Shkreli found guilty of fraud (as another Martin Shkreli arraigned for money laundering)
By Steven Melendez - Friday Aug 4, 2017
Self-proclaimed “pharma bro” Martin Shkreli has been convicted of securities fraud in Brooklyn federal court. A jury found Shkreli guilty of two counts of securities fraud and one count of conspiracy to commit securities fraud, and not guilty of five other charges, CNBC reports.
He faces up to 20 years in prison. Prosecutors said he misled investors in two hedge funds he ran, losing money and investing some of their funds in a separate pharmaceutical company called Retrophin, even as he claimed to be making money. He then used money from the drug business to repay them, prosecutors said.
Shkreli also gained infamy for raising the price of Daraphim, an anti-parasite drug, more than 5,000 percent as the head of drug company Turing Pharmaceuticals, and has earned notoriety as an internet troll, including getting suspended from Twitter for harassing a journalist covering his businesses.
Shkreli’s attorney says he plans to appeal the verdict, The Washington Post reports. “This was a witch hunt of epic proportions,” Shkreli told the Post.
Earlier in the day, courtroom observers got a laugh when another defendant also named Martin Shkreli appeared in the same courtroom, to be arraigned on money-laundering-related charges related to alleged drug trafficking by a group that has also been accused of trafficking weapons from Kosovo. The two Shkrelis are unrelated, as are the cases, though both are of Albanian descent, CNBC reports.
