Was 'Pharma Bro' Martin Shkreli's punishment too harsh? | The Tylt
Martin Shkreli, a.k.a. "Pharma Bro," was sentenced to 7 years in prison for securities fraud and conspiracy. Shkreli became one of the world’s most reviled humans after buying a life-saving drug and then raising its price by 5,000 percent. Shkreli's lawyer asked the judge for a sentence of 12 to 18 months, along with community service and court-mandated therapy. Do you think his punishment was fair? ⚖️
