NEW YORK — A federal judge on Wednesday revoked the $5 million bail of Martin Shkreli, the infamous former hedge fund manager convicted of defrauding investors, after prosecutors complained that his out-of-court antics posed a danger to the community.

While awaiting sentencing, Shkreli has harassed women online, prosecutors argued, and even offered his Facebook followers $5,000 to grab a strand of Hillary Clinton’s hair during her book tour. Shkreli, who faces up to 20 years in prison, apologized saying that he did not expect anyone to take his online comments seriously.

“He does not need to apologize to me. He should have apologized to the government, the Secret Service, and Hillary Clinton,” said U.S. District Judge Kiyo Matsumoto, in revoking his bond.

“This is a solicitation of assault. That is not protected by the First Amendment.”

Shkreli was taken into custody immediately after the hour-long hearing. He did not visibly react though he appeared more nervous than when he entered court. He will remain jailed until his sentencing hearing, later this fall.

I remember there was a "And now this" segment on John Oliver of actual quotes of jurors who were dismissed from his court case and all of them were basically, 'he looks like total scum and I will convict him no matter what.'

Not expecting more than a slap on the wrist, but I'll laugh if this dickbag gets years in prison for this. It would be utterly deserved.

I really don't know what Shkreli's endgame has been since he first entered the limelight.

As a multi-milionaire, the only thing he had to do to ensure his continued success was nothing. In spite of this, the man seems to be intent on convincing the public that he's an asshole and convincing the police that he needs to be in jail.

It's as if he truly hates himself.

Eh he offered the court 5 mil since bail being revoked typically means you don't get that money back right?
