Shkreli's lawyer says his client's caustic online rants shouldn't be taken so seriously. The attorney for the convicted ex-biotech CEO argued in court papers filed Tuesday, Sept. 12, that Shkreli's recent offer to pay a $5,000 bounty for a lock of Hillary Clinton's hair falls under the category of "political satire or strained humor."

NEW YORK (AP) — The Latest on former pharmaceuticals company CEO Martin Shkreli (all times local):

6:30 p.m.

A judge who revoked the bail of former pharmaceuticals company CEO Martin Shkreli (SHKREL'-ee) and had him taken to jail says his offer to pay a $5,000 bounty for a Hillary Clinton hair with the follicle was "solicitation of an assault."

The judge said Wednesday that's not protected by the First Amendment and there's "a risk someone may take" Shkreli up on his offer.

Shkreli is awaiting sentencing for a securities fraud conviction. His defense argued in court papers his recent offer to pay the $5,000 bounty for Clinton's hair was "political satire or strained humor." The government calls the comments threats worthy of revoking the bail of the so-called Pharma Bro.

Shkreli is best known for hiking up the price of a life-saving drug and for trolling his critics online. He has said he feels "exonerated" despite his conviction.

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

The judge has scheduled a Wednesday hearing to consider a government demand to jail Shkreli while he awaits sentencing for a securities fraud conviction.

Shkreli's defense argued in court papers filed Tuesday his recent offer to pay a $5,000 bounty for a Hillary Clinton hair with the follicle falls under the category of "political satire or strained humor."
