Martin Shkreli’s lawyers fail to corral bragging ‘pharma bro’ ahead of sentencing

A securities fraud conviction has done little to silence “Pharma Bro” Martin Shkreli on social media, who imagined out loud a short stretch in a posh “Club Fed,” to the repeat dismay of a legal team working to limit or avoid jail time for their chatty client.

A federal jury in Brooklyn found the former pharmaceutical CEO and hedge fund manager guilty on Friday of deceiving investors.

Speaking after the verdict, Shkreli’s lawyer acknowledged that his client needs to break his habit of trashing critics. Within an hour, Shkreli was live-streaming on YouTube from his Manhattan apartment, drinking a beer and bragging about his wealth during an interview with a New York Daily News reporter.
