M Shkreli Trial - Day 1 - "Mr Wonderful"

In jury selection today, they have gone through 90 of the 130 prospective jurors, dismissing about 60 of them that show prejudice against Martin.

From the NY Times:

A number of potential jurors in the fraud trial of Martin Shkreli were dismissed in quick succession on Monday morning after calling the defendant “a snake,” “the most hated man in America” and “the face of corporate greed.”

The negative comments built up to the point that Mr. Brafman began to signal to Judge Matsumoto when potential jurors had said enough that he could challenge them for cause, to stop them from going “on a tirade against Mr. Shkreli.”

Jury selection will continue on Tuesday and the Trial is expected to start by Wednesday.

3. the 2017 Bernie Madoff, hopefully Martin Shkreli is sentenced to 3 lifetimes in prison.

4. The best for these charges if convicted is 20 yrs

 

Then there are to potential charges that may come out once his former attorney testifies.

To bad the judge can't add another 10 years for just being a smuck.
