Sounds about right. He can get out earlier with parole.

I do hope his sentence includes being perma banned from both the securities and pharmaceutical industries.

This can’t be emphasized enough. It is perfectly fine from a legal standpoint to shaft the sick and through them, all of us for whom medical insurance is a significant expense. But defraud a few rich hedgies, and the law will sit up and take notice. Late stage capitalism at its late-state-capitalism-ist.

He wept and we don’t have pictures? NOoooooooo! That should be the new standard, a replacement photo for smirking bro Shkreli. (I just did an image search for “shkreli wept” and it’s the usual smugness.) How could there not be cameras there!
I can’t get rid of this mental image of Shkreli crying in the court, still smirking.
