Transcript: Judge Pulls Martin Shkreli's Bail Over Hillary Clinton Posts

A judge revoked Martin Shkreli's bail, sending him to jail  for months .

A jury  convicted Shkreli , a former pharmaceutical CEO, in August on two counts of securities fraud and one count of conspiracy to commit securities fraud.

He was out on bail, but federal prosecutors wanted it revoked.

They said Shkreli was a danger to the community after he  offered $5,000  to anyone who could grab one of Hillary Clinton's hairs.

Shkreli apologized, saying he "used poor judgment" and asked the judge not to change his bail status.

Shkreli will stay in jail until Jan. 16 when he's sentenced for his prior convictions.

They carry a  maximum  of 20 years in prison, though experts predict the actual sentence will likely be much less.
