The former lawyer for “Pharma Bro” Martin Shkreli says he regrets the day he ever met the pharmaceutical executive.
Evan Greebel made the statement during his sentencing hearing for wire and securities fraud conspiracy where U.S. District Judge Kiyo Matsumoto ruled Greebel will spend 18 months in prison and pay $10 million in restitution and $115,000 in forfeiture payments.
“I will regret every day of my life the day I met Martin Shkreli,” said Greebel.
“I dread the day my children decide to search my name on the internet,” the 45-year-old lawyer added.
Greebel was convicted in December of conspiring with Shkreli to repay the pharmaceutical executive’s defrauded investors.
Shkreli was sentenced to 7 years in prison this past May.
