Sarah Walters, as a former federal prosecutor, said prosecutors did a good job of focusing on the disruptive conduct and statements of convicted former pharma executive Martin Shkreli. “Making fun of the prosecutors, making fun of the process, I do think that led to an increased sentence for him,” Ms. Walters said, adding that for Shkreli’s defense lawyers the only choice was, “You just soldier through and put on your absolute best case.”
