Furthermore, Judge Matsumoto ruled in February that, for the purposes of sentencing, Shkreli was liable for almost $10.5 million in losses incurred by his investors. Its essence is instead about "repeated breaches of trust" and "repeated lies to his investors".

Shkreli stoked his notoriety by stonewalling federal lawmakers at a hearing and later tweeting they were "imbeciles".
Brafman, in urging the judge for leniency, also admitted that Shkreli could be infuriating.
The 34-year-old said: "There one person to blame for me being here today is me".
