Arrogance Has Its Cost for Pharma Bro

Seven years in Federal prison. The "JV team", as Shkreli called the prosecutors, put his ass away. Assuming he makes the maximum in good time and allowing credit for his time in jail after his bail was revoked, Shkreli will do 5-1/2 years in prison.

It's probably a near-certainty that Shkreli talked and acted himself into prison. He seemed to treat the charges and the trial as a big joke and that he, Pharma Bro, would never do time. Even dumber criminals know enough to keep their yaps shut and let their lawyers do the talking once charges are preferred. But not Shkreli.

He's got until somewhere between the fall of 2023 and 2024 to reflect on that.
