|Martin Shkreli is best known as the founder of Turing Pharmaceuticals AG, where he gleefully spiked the price of a life-saving drug 5000 times. He was also accused of repaying creditors by stealing $11 million from Retrophin Inc., another medical company he founded. Prosecutors described it as a Ponzi scheme or robbing one bank to repay another. Facing a prison term of up to 20 years, Shkreli stands out in the annals of American CEOs turned convicts.|
Shkreli made one conventional legal decision: he didn’t take the stand because his many lies could’ve been used against him.
