As a litigation consultant who helps people prepare for court cases so they can best present themselves in front of a jury, as  as well as being  someone who helps select I can assure you that after seeing  the body language and how pharmaceutical executive Martin Shkreli, the man  who gouged prices drugs, acted in front of Congress, he will never succeed in front of a jury.

While he had every right to invoke his Fifth Amendment rights, his arrogant body language spoke volumes about him. It left a lot to be desired .

His crossed arms indicated defiance as did his smug facial expression. He repeatedly read from a piece of paper which stated  that he was invoking his Fifth Amendment rights to not incriminate himself  and therefore refused to answer any question that was posed to him..

His inappropriate smiles and his looking around the room instead of facing ahead and respectfully acknowledging those who were speaking, will raise ire among jurors if he exhibits those behaviors in a court of law.

Martin Shkreli  is the one who  hiked the price of a life-saving drug from $13.50 to $750 and showed no sympathy or compassion when asked how it would affect others who needed the drug but who could not afford it. The drug at the center of  the questioning is  Daraprim, used to treat toxoplasmosis, a parasitic disease that affects those with weakened immune systems.

Even though he is 32 years old, he acted like an immature 1o year old as he  continued to smirk and grin as he refused to answer any question, with the exception of his name. But he managed a disrespectful tweet right after leaving the hearing, tweeting “Hard to accept that these imbeciles represent the people in our government.

Shkreli is accused of  repeatedly losing money for investors and lying to them and illegally taking assets from one of his companies to pay off debtors in another, running his company like a Ponzi scheme where he used each subsequent company to pay off defrauded investors from the prior company, according to  Brooklyn U.S. Attorney Robert Capers.

When he does go to court, if she shows this arrogant and immature behavior, there will be no mercy or sympathy towards him from either a judge or a jury. He may end up with the same fate as another  infamous Ponzi Schemer, Bernard Madoff, who is  now serving 150 years in prison. Then Mr. Shkreli will find out who is the real “imbecile.”

  1. Only someone truly out of touch with reality and human beings could behave this way. He is in for either a very rude awakening or a one-way trip to the fantasy world he lives in. Either way, things don’t look good for Mr. Shrekli unless he snaps out of it and truly repents.
