Martin Shkreli In Jail and In Love!
The tale of infamous Pharma bro Martin Shkreli does not end when he was found guilty for securities fraud.
In August 2017, Shkreli was free on $5 million bail while he awaited sentencing. After his bail was revoked because of what the judge claimed was a solicitation to assault — a Facebook post about Hillary Clinton — his sentence came in: He was to serve a 7 year sentence and forfeit more than $7.3 million in assets.
All the while, something unexpected was happening. It was later revealed that Shkreli had supposedly fallen in love. Who’s the lucky lady, you ask? Christie Smythe, the reporter who broke the news of Shkreli’s arrest.
