Someone from Wall Street Bets makes an incorrect prediction, nothing new.
Didn't he also go on stream and talk about how the max sentence would only be like 6 months. I think he went through all the sentencing guidelines or some shit.
To be fair, being able to afford a good lawyer is probably one of the single biggest determinents of judicial outcomes regardless of guilt or innocence, at least in America. He was too arrogant to not shut the hell up. Undoubtedly the outcome would have been better for him if he had followed his lawyers advice, kept his head down and put on his best good boy act.
I can’t wait to see him swagger into the big house with that smarmy face and attitude. I’m sure all those years of listening to the Wu Tang Clan have him prepared for the big house.
I just love the "from scratch with $4 million" part. Anybody got $4 million they wanna give me? Trying to start a company from scratch. Thx.
The most interesting part of that thread is a link to Shkreli doing [Excel spreadsheets.](https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jFSf5YhYQbw
) Others suggested that this was unimpressive compared to junior associates who had been doing this 10hrs a day for a year or so, but I was still impressed by his technical skill and ability to (1) research for data, (2) input data, (3) analyze data, and (4) read real-time messages and respond at a conversational tempo.
That said, as others have mentioned, Shkreli is the poster boy for why lawyers tell their clients to never speak about their case to investigators or the media (unless under the supervision of, or consultation with, legal counsel).
In an unflattering way, he has redefined the term "idiot-savant."
He might have been right if he kept his mouth shut and laid low.
I wonder if his little face looks so smug and happy now.
Shkreli was a moderator there? Seriously? Also apparently a moderator of /r/MartinShkreli, which I assume he made himself and Jesus Christ is that just sad.
I mean, did you think he was the type of person to go around online acknowledging his guilt?
Now, some might argue that his conviction shows the lack of morals in the justice system - where he's punished, not for increasing the prices of a life-saving drug, but for messing with some rich guy's capital. That is a good point.
Regardless, given how much of an asshole he's behaving on- and offline, I'll just revel in the schadenfreude. Although to be frank I doubt he'll be learning humility and all that nice stuff in the pampered white collar jail he's going.
