A Little Holiday News to Gladden Your Heart; Wheels of Justice Edition

Martin Shkreli, aka PharmaBro, has been arrested on fraud charges.
Federal prosecutors accused Shkreli of engaging in a complicated shell game after his defunct hedge fund, MSMB Capital Management, lost millions. He is alleged to have made secret payoffs and set up sham consulting arrangements. A New York lawyer, Evan Greebel, was also arrested early Thursday. He's accused of conspiring with Shkreli in part of the scheme.
Given the amount and skill of legal talent that PharmaBro can throw at the case, it would be reasonable to expect that the case against him is pretty solid.

And, given that he is rich as fuck, don't be surprised if his bail is an eye-watering amount.

I figured that story'd make your day.

A mere $5,000,000 bond with a surrendered passport and limited to partial New York area.

That's pocket-lint money to him. I expect that he'll pull a Polanski and skip the country.

CenterPuke88 said...

Yep, I'm thinking the same...plenty of places that'll give him a passport for cash.

BTW, the "affluenza" lad is on the run with his mother right now. Just another example of money buying stuff, but he's wanted on a probation violation.
