Shkreli, infamous for hiking the price of a critical drug, Daraprim, was convicted August 4 in an unrelated trial of lying to investors in two hedge funds he used to run.
Notorious Pharma Bro Martin Shkreli is now locked up, awaiting sentencing on three felony accounts of security fraud. The former biotech CEO, known for provocative online antics, played short excerpts while live-streaming himself in his Manhattan apartment after President Donald Trump's election and his conviction.
It's unclear whether Shkreli is still the owner. It had amassed bids of more than $1 million before Shkreli was remanded into custody in September for offering to pay his Facebook followers to grab Hillary Clinton's hair. The sale was completed while Shkreli was in jail, after his bail was revoked for posting a freakish request on Facebook to pay $5,000 for a strand of former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton's hair.

Shkreli's lawyer is arguing since of his investors lost any money, he shouldn't have to give anything up.
Prosecutors say Shkreli's assets subject to forfeiture also include an Enigma code-breaking machine from World War II and an unspecified Picasso. Several of Shkreli's former investors have testified in the trial.
Shkreli, who disputed the charges, signaled through his attorney he would also oppose the forfeiture request.
The case is U.S. v. Shkreli, 15-cr-00637, U.S. District Court, Eastern District of New York (Brooklyn).
