A former UA hedge fund manager once known as “America’s most hated man” has been jailed for seven years for fraud.

Martin Shkreli became notorious after investing in a pharmaceutical company and then increasing the price of a life-saving drug used to treat HIV-AIDS by over 5,000 percent.

Shkreli was also ordered to forfeit seven million dollars in assets, including a one-of-a-kind Wu-Tang Clan album that he had bragged about buying.

Al Jazeera’s Kristen Saloomey reports from New York.

Fraud? But most politicians are doing that by serving their wealthy donors over their constituents. Regardless, glad to see that "Pharma douche" is going to the big house.
