Mr. Brafman just filed another five page letter brief arguing that the sentences in the cases the government cited just yesterday — as instructive for Marty’s case… um… aren’t.
Putting to the side that several of the defendants in the cases ADMITTED guilt, and plead guilty — and still got over a decade (unmentioned by Mr. Brafman as differing from Marty — but of course that matters, immensely)…
We note that Mr. Brafman STILL makes no honest, forthright accounting for Mr. Shkreli’s post conviction criminal conduct (all of it admitted) — which well settled law deems quite relevant, to the sentence to be imposed.
He simply deflects, as to it — saying (as we all say) — “how could he…?!”
AND, SO — this changes nothing (in my experienced view) — except that Mr. Brafman may not get any oral advocacy time on Friday. We may simply see the able Judge read the sentence and opinion into the record.
See ya’ Friday
