Pharma Bro still owes the feds big bucks
Prosecutors Tuesday asked Brooklyn federal judge Judge Kiyo Matsumoto to allow them access to Shkreli’s $5 million account to pay the remaining $464,894.13 he still owes in court fines and restitution.
Mastumoto has yet to rule on the motion.
Attorneys for Shkreli did not immediately return a request for comment.
The government’s request comes almost a year after the 35-year-old was convicted of defrauding hedge fund investors.
Shkreli is serving out his seven-year sentence at the Federal Correctional Institution in Fort Dix, NJ.
