Prosecutors want Martin Shkreli to stop talking (STA BREAKING NEWS and ARCHIVES)

Have you seen video of this guy in court? The guy who bought a pharmaceutical company and then raised the price of HIV medication from less than 13.50 a pill to 750.00 PER PILL? He acts like a real jerk, laughing and talking out loud, it makes you want to slap him, just looking at him and how he is acting makes one furious. Look it up to see. Unbelievable.

NEW YORK — Federal prosecutors are asking a Brooklyn judge to silence Martin Shkreli, the boisterous former hedge-fund manager and pharmaceutical-industry executive who is on trial facing eight counts of securities fraud.

Shkreli has “embarked on a campaign of disruption,” prosecutors said in a letter to U.S. District Judge Kiyo Matsumoto late Monday. Shkreli should be silenced or the jury semi-sequestered, the prosecutors said.

Shkreli is best known for raising the price of a drug used by HIV patients 5,000 percent, but he is on trial for what prosecutors say was a five-year campaign to defraud investors in two hedge funds and the biopharmaceutical company Retrophin, all of which he founded. Shkreli told investors that he had a successful track record as a hedge-fund manager and sent them false performance reports and backdated documents to cover up his losses, prosecutors allege. That was all a lie, prosecutors have said.
