Hillary Clinton's security was ramped up by the Secret Service after the Shkreli's Facebook post.

The post Martin Shkreli Jailed for Hillary Clinton Facebook Post appeared first on InvestorPlace.

Former pharmaceutical executive Martin Shkreli, infamous for price gouging and now awaiting sentencing for a fraud conviction, has been sent back to jail. But even if the convictions stood, Shkreli has said he was likely to be sentenced to little or no jail time in a minimum security facility.

N.Korea condemns Tokyo, Seoul over latest United Nations sanctions
As North Korea holds more frequent and more powerful tests, the South in particular has ramped up its deterrence efforts. Here we take a look back at the United Nations sanctions since 2006.

Shkreli is best known as the CEO of a pharmaceutical company that hiked up the price of a life-saving drug to make massive profits.

Judge Kiyo Matsumoto said Shkreli, who is awaiting sentencing following his fraud conviction in August, has "demonstrated that he has posed a real danger". Maybe he was going to run her ancestry DNA results for her, we don't know.

"Pharma Bro" Shkreli's bond revoked after... Now his defense tried to say that, look, other politicians like Donald Trump have said frightful things and they didn't have their bail revoked, and needless to say that argument didn't work.

Odell Beckham Jr. goes through team drills with Giants
According to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport , the Giants have "much more optimism" that Beckham will suit up in Week 2. Needless to say, NY needs to get Beckham Jr. back on the field for Monday night's game against the Detroit Lions .

A federal judge in NY is considering whether the provocative online antics of former pharmaceuticals company CEO Martin Shkreli (SHKREL'-ee) are bad enough to put him behind bars.

A defense attorney had argued in court papers that Shkreli's recent offer to pay a $5,000 bounty for securing a Hillary Clinton hair with a follicle while she's on a book tour was merely a tasteless joke comparable to some of President Trump's derisive comments, not a threat worthy of putting him behind bars.

But a court in NY decided that Shkreli's offer to pay for a Hillary Clinton hair with the follicle was "solicitation of an assault". "That is a solicitation to assault in exchange for money", the judge said. I must confirm the sequences I have. Shkreli said he wanted to DNA test it to link the Clinton Foundation to possible crimes (or, as he said later in an interview, to see if Clinton's a lizard).

North Korea Threatens To Turn The US Into 'Ashes And Darkness'
It also bans imports of textiles from North Korea, stripping the country of another key source of hard currency. Evidence suggests that this is a bomb meant for the destruction of an American city should a conflict occur.

Mr. Shkreli's lawyer, Benjamin Brafman, argued at the hearing that Mr. Shkreli was not violent and that the post had been "a momentary lapse in judgment". After Shkreli wrote an apology to the court, saying: "I am not a violent person", Judge Matsumoto commented: "He doesn't have to apologise to me". Shkreli, he said, deserved another chance. He faces up to 20 years in prison, though the term could end up being shorter under federal sentencing guidelines, the AP reports.
