Martin Shkreli Is Going to Jail

Controversial pharmaceutical executive Martin Shkreli is off to prison after having his bail revoked. Shkreli's bail was revoked after he made a Facebook post offering to pay someone $5,000 to get a piece of Hillary Clinton's hair at one of her book signings. Shkreli maintains that this was a joke and was not meant to be taken seriously. 

Still, a judge ruled that he was a danger to the community and revoked his $5 million bail. Shkreli faces up to 20 years in prison for securities fraud. 

Shkreli has become known for his eccentric antics since bursting onto the scene for raising the price of a toxoplasmosis drug by 5000 percent, and once bought the only copy of an unreleased Wu-Tang Clan album.
