Martin Shkreli,

The Washington Post Sunday - - TAKING STOCK -

once dubbed “the most hated man in Amer­ica,” is now a felon. Shkreli, known for rais­ing the price of a po­ten­tially life­sav­ing drug by 5,000 per­cent, was found guilty of de­fraud­ing in­vestors in two hedge funds and in Retrophin, a phar­ma­ceu­ti­cal com­pany he co­founded. Shkreli faces as long as 20 years be­hind bars, al­though he’s likely to serve much less. Pros­e­cu­tors said Shkreli, 34, mis­led clients about the per­for­mance of his fail­ing hedge funds, se­cretly used their money to start Retrophin and then took $11 mil­lion from the drugde­vel­op­ment com­pany to re­pay them.
