As I Said She Would, On Friday — Judge Matsumoto Signed The $7,360,450 Forfeiture Order, Just Now…

Not at all surprising, and the Wu- won’t be offered for sale — at a US Marshals’ auction — until all of Marty’s appeals are exhausted (nor will the Picasso be), but now you know.

The very capable Judge Matsumoto clearly is following the letter of the law in the Second Circuit.

Here is the fully-signed order.

That increases the probability of a 13-plus year sentence, on Friday (and perhaps much higher) — with about a decade of time he will serve, the bulk of it, in a real medium security federal prison — not a “Summer CampFederale“.

Now you also know… this… man….

Tonight, we will see the AUSAs’ sentencing memo. Then we wait for Friday.

Namaste

    My heart goes out to Greebel. Not so long ago he had the choice whether to dob Shkreli in. Now he’s embroiled in this awful situation, ruining his career. It’s not entirely his fault, really, is it?…poor man…

      Yes — a ton! If you can make it to the Western Slope — I have a TON of favorites! If you are limited to the Eastern Slope, that’s the Denver side — I’d highly recommend Rocky Mountain National Park outside Estes Park, Colorado… huge, and greatly variable terrain and views… but the real back country (14,000 ft summit yurts and 10th Mt. Div. huts, along the backbone of the Rockies… are best reached from about 4 hours due west of Denver, on the “other side” of the mountains!

      Namaste, man… I’m jealous already!

        We are starting near Estes. Then visiting Sapphire Point (Got married here). Eventually headed to Grand Junction, and finally to my nephew’s wedding in Telluride. 8 days total. What’s your best list on the Western Slope?

        That’s excellent — Telluride is top of the list, for certain!

        I’ll come back to this when I’ve taken the time to pick things along your intended route… you really can’t go wrong with the route you’ve laid out.

        If the snow has cleared from Independence Pass (and it is open), I might make my route through Climax (the mines I worked in, as a kid)… and into Leadville, past Twin Lakes, over Independence Pass into Aspen — then back down valley, toward Grand Junction, and on.

        That traverse (Independence Pass) — while one of the more harrowing drives in America — is just jaw droppingly beautiful with Spring snows, still melting…

        And Aspen is where my daughter now lives… what a fun town!

        More in the next few days….

        Namaste!

        That is so cool!

        SO… is this a big (round number) anniversary, or just coincides with the wedding in Telluride?

        Either way, that’s great stuff man!

        Namaste

      That’s harsh man. Trying to recognize that people who were snowed by Marty are now waking up — to a very cold and bitter reality… but both sides deserve to be heard, to be sure!

      Namaste!

        I recognize. I feel compelled to donate to the mental health initiatives… by delivering cold virtual face slaps of comedy. :). People taking things so seriously regarding a felon they’ve never met… also may be a sign of mental illness. Side note: Charles Manson was engaged in 2014 to a 26 year old woman who had been visiting him for the prior 9 years. So… there is hope for a love connection for Marty during his incarceration (other than his cell mate). I’ll be here all week folks. Tip your waitress…

      I’m sure he has legions of fans. Plenty of people who’ve never met him have sent him books to read in prison, I saw the book list the other day – its very long. He needs support during this difficult time, why shouldn’t he capitalise on his fame by making friends? It’s the age of the internet afterall. Millions of people everyday correspond with people they have never, and are not likely, to meet.

        Whatever floats your boat. There are lots of “free” people in the analog real world who one could interact with. Locked up, douce bag, felons and scoundrels… must be an acquired taste. 🙂 Just not for me. But you do you.

    I found an address to write to Shkrels in The Tab, but if he is sent down, I assume it will be a different facility than the one he’s currently in. I suppose it will be all over the press where he’ll reside. Though it might be futile, I’ve got a celebration song lined up for if he gets less than 5 years. But I didn’t choose a song for a bad outcome because I thought that would make me way too depressed. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=aLSLqpMXFdE

      The two sides have agreed to allow the “extra letters” be viewed by the public — with only contact details, and medical information redacted, just now:

      “… The parties have met and conferred, and jointly submit this letter pursuant to the Court’s order dated February 28, 2018, requiring the parties to advise the Court (1) which of the letters that the Court has received in chambers should the Court consider in making its sentencing determination regarding the defendant Martin Shkreli (at the sentencing hearing scheduled for March 9, 2018), and (2) whether the Court should keep part or all of the letters it received under seal.
      First, the parties agree that, pursuant to 18 U.S.C. § 3553(a), the Court should consider any of the letters that the Court has or will receive regarding Shkreli in connection with the sentencing hearing, and afford those letters whatever weight the Court deems appropriate.
      Second, the parties agree that the letters should be filed on the public docket, with the following information redacted: (1) the name of the author of each letter, (2) all personally identifiable information (“PII”) contained within each letter and (3) any information that details any individual’s personal medical history….”

      Now you know!

    Since AUSA’s are filing electronically, I take it they have until midnight to file and still count it as filed on the 5th … or maybe they already filed and Condor’s reading it now?

    Funny how the pleadings and orders call Martin by different names at different times. Here’s your revised sentencing guidelines, depending on how he is referred to:

    Marty – 12 months.
    Martin – 3 years.
    Martin Shkreli – 7 years.
    Mr. Shkreli – 12 years.
    The defendant – 15 years.
    The defendant, MARTIN SHKRELI – 20 years

        Hilarious! If the “tiny beard doesn’t… fit — you must acquit!”

        Separately — I’d be shocked — shocked, I say — if ANY government filing called him “Marty” — that has to be his defense team, right?

        Namaste…

        “that has to be his defense team, right?”
        ____________

        Right. But I’m surprised they didn’t ask for time served. Fact they are asking for 12-18 months is a bad sign for Marty … apparently they are afraid of making the Judge mad with a position that might appear frivolous. On a similar note, under the sentencing guidelines, if the defendant challenges the point enhancements, the Judge can hold that against the defendant as not accepting responsibility – so that’s probably why they haven’t challenged the points. Sounds bizarre .. but there are cases on it.

        So much just depends on strategy. If anyone learns anything from this case, it’s get the best defense attorney you can!

    Probably why federal judges sometimes give up a lifetime job and go back to private practice … at some point it must get boring! (Pay could also be a factor, but salary for federal judges doesn’t look bad.)

    Mr. Shkreli has some good arguments on appeal … there aren’t that many cases with such weird facts. In civil cases, there is the doctrine of inconsistent verdicts, but that doesn’t apply to criminal cases.
