On Wednesday, former CEO of Turing Pharmaceuticals Martin Shkreli has been sent to jail for offering $5000 bounty for a strand of Hillary Clinton's hair, the Guardian reported. Shkreli posted the offer on Facebook, however, his lawyer later argued that he was just making a point and wasn't really serious about having someone go after Hillary's hair.

Shkreli, 34, also known as "the most hated man in America" was arrested in 2015 for using three fraudulent schemes by taking money from Retrophin to repay investors in MSMB capital.

Shkreli's Facebook post destroyed his life

According to Kiyo Matsumoto, District Judge of the United States, Shkreli's Wednesday post on Facebook showed a danger to the public.

He posted shortly before Clinton started her book tour. The U.S. Secret Service was allocated for the protection of former Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton, Reuters reported.

“This is a solicitation of assault in exchange for money,” the judge said. She added that the post was not protected by the first amendment. Shkreli apologized for his bad behavior to the court and said that he is not a violent person but it was too late for the court. Matsumoto noted that he should apologize to the government and Hillary Clinton, not to her.

Shkreli's lawyer Benjamin Brafman argued with Matsumoto but she was not convinced. On Tuesday, Shkreli sent a letter to the judge, saying that his post on Facebook was a satire. Matsumoto rejected all the arguments by Benjamin, saying that Shkreli has more than 93,000 followers on Facebook and someone could have taken it seriously.

Matsumoto was very angry with Shkreli

During the hearing, Matsumoto expressed her anger towards Shkreli, pointing to his July's post, and said that he had threatened Lauren Duca, a journalist, that he would have had sex with her. Twitter banned him in January for harassing Duca because she rejected his invitation to attend Trump's inauguration.

Brafman pleaded for some more time from the judge [VIDEO] for his victim to prove himself innocent as he was not a danger, but she did not change her decision. He said that the court's decision was wrong. He also added that "We are obviously disappointed."

Shkreli has been charged with defrauding in pharmaceuticals for which he can face maximum 20 Years in jail, but his punishment will be less because none of the investors lost their money. On Wednesday, Jacquelyn Kasulis, the U.S. attorney, said that "I think this escalating pattern of violence against women is incredibly disturbing."
