‘Pharma bro’ Martin Shkreli released from prison, sent to halfway house

In a statement, the U.S. Bureau of Prisons said Shkreli had been transferred Wednesday from a federal correctional facility in Pennsylvania to a “community confinement” program which is the equivalent of a halfway house. It said his projected release date from federal custody is Sept. 14.

In a Facebook post Wednesday, Shkreli, who became known as “pharma bro” for taking a rare, life-saving drug and raising its price by 5,000 percent, shared a selfie from inside a vehicle.
