Key Words: Martin Shkreli is an ‘odd duck,’ but that’s no crime, attorney says

He may be weird and you may not like him, but that’s not a crime, Martin Shkreli’s attorney said Wednesday as the criminal trial for the infamous “pharma bro” started in New York.

In his opening statement, defense attorney Benjamin Brafman acknowledged that Shkreli may not be likeable, but pleaded with jurors to look past his brash personality.

“You may not like Martin Shkreli, you may have reasons to hate Martin Shkreli, but that is not reason to convict.”

“Is he strange? Yes. Will you find him weird? Yes,” Brafman told jurors, according to the Washington Post.
