UK art dealer jailed for stealing works by Rolling Stone Ronnie Wood

  UK art dealer jailed for stealing works by Rolling Stone Ronnie Wood A British art dealer who abused his position by stealing clients' artworks, including many paintings by Rolling Stones guitarist Ronnie Wood, was jailed on Tuesday, the state prosecution service said. The artworks, taken over a 27-year period, included portraits of Mick Jagger, Bob Dylan, Ringo Starr, Marilyn Monroe and model Kate Moss painted by Wood, who has pursued his love of painting in parallel with his career as a rock musician.

NEW YORK (CBSNewYork/AP) — Martin Shkreli , the former pharmaceutical CEO notorious for his “Pharma Bro” persona and price-gouging scandal, was headed to jail Wednesday, in part over comments he made about Hillary Clinton . A judge ruled the provocative online antics of Shkreli

U.S. prosecutors had moved to jail Shkreli last Thursday. Shkreli apologized for his actions on Monday. In a letter addressed to Judge Matsumoto, Shkreli wrote that he SEE ALSO: 'Pharma Bro' Martin Shkreli says he used 'poor judgment ' in placing a ,000 bounty for Hillary Clinton 's hair .

(Bloomberg) -- Martin Shkreli’s big mouth landed him in jail even before his fraud conviction did.

A U.S. judge revoked the former pharmaceutical executive’s bail Wednesday, ordering him jailed immediately, over a bounty Shkreli issued in a Facebook post for a strand of former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton’s hair.

“The fact that he continues to remain unaware of the inappropriateness of his actions or words demonstrates that he may well be an ongoing danger or risk to the community," U.S. District Judge Kiyo Matsumoto said.

Shkreli, wearing a lavender button-down shirt and Dockers, was stone-faced as the judge handed down her decision. He was immediately taken into custody and led away from the courtroom by two deputy U.S. Marshals and into a prisoner holding cell adjacent to the sixth-floor courtroom.

Woman: I'd rather go to jail than take down Trump sign

  Woman: I'd rather go to jail than take down Trump sign A Maine woman is saying that she would rather go to jail than take down her signs in support of President Trump. Susan Reitman of Rockland, Maine is displaying two signs in her hometown that read "I Love Trump" and "He Won, Get over it," according to New England Cable News.But the signs are in violation of local law because they are larger than allowed by the town, meaning she could face fines of $100 or more every day they're up.Assistant code officer Bill Butler told NECN that another resident had complained about the signs, and that they are not allowed to be displayed without a permit.

Today, a federal judge revoked Shkreli ’s bail and sent him to jail over the now-deleted post. Shkreli was found guilty of fraud earlier this summer and is facing up to twenty years. Martin Shkreli Jailed Over Facebook Post Seeking Hillary Clinton ’s Hair .

He will be held at the Metropolitan Detention Center, according to his lawyer Benjamin Brafman. It’s a federal jail in the Sunset Park section of Brooklyn which has housed terrorists and mobsters.

"We are obviously disappointed,” Brafman said after the hearing. “We believe the court arrived at the wrong decision, but she’s the judge and right now we will have to live with this decision.”

The conviction and pending sentencing didn’t tame the brash executive known as Pharma Bro. In a now-deleted Facebook posting, in which he offered his followers $5,000 for a strand of Clinton’s hair during her book tour, he caught the attention of prosecutors. They asked Matsumoto to revoke Shkreli’s bail and throw him in jail because he’s not only a convicted felon but his threats pose a danger to the community.

"He’s reckless,” prosecutor Jacquelyn Kasulis told the judge. “He doesn’t get it. He doesn’t respect the rule of law."

Clinton compares herself to Cersei in Game of Thrones

  Clinton compares herself to Cersei in Game of Thrones In her new book “What Happened”, Hillary Clinton compared the vitriol she faced on the campaign trail to Cersei Lannister’s walk of atonement in the hit TV series Game of Thrones. In a passage contemplating the role sexism played in her failed presidential bid, Clinton wrote, “Crowds at Trump rallies called for my imprisonment more times than I can count.” Click to expand Your browser does not support this video require(["binding"], function (binding) { binding("wcVideoPlayer", "#video_player_3d7e1530-db5c-4557-84de-0913bfdbe71d").

The "Pharma Bro" was out on million bail until a judge revoked it over his Facebook post. jailed him for a Facebook post in which Shkreli offered ,000 to his followers to grab a strand of Hillary Clinton ’s hair during her book tour.

“Martin Shkreli , the former pharmaceutical executive who is awaiting sentencing for a fraud conviction, was sent to jail on Wednesday after a federal judge found that he presented a threat to the community because he had offered money for a strand of Hillary Clinton ’s hair ,” the New York Times reports.

Shkreli appears to have violated state and federal laws prohibiting threats against the immediate family members of former presidents, the prosecutors argued. The comments prompted the U.S. Secret Service to start an investigation and boost security for Clinton, they said.

Shkreli has a history of making provocative comments against specific women, the prosecutors said.

He was banned from Twitter in January for harassing a Teen Vogue writer and persisted in verbally badgering women online.

Shkreli responded to the government’s request with a profanity in a Facebook post, adding “I will never kiss their ring or snitch. Come at me with your hardest because I haven’t seen anything impressive yet."

He quickly backed off, writing an apologetic letter to the judge in a request to remain out on bail.

"Some may have read my comments about Mrs. Clinton as threatening, which was never my intention," Shkreli wrote. "I used poor judgment but never intended to cause alarm or promote any act of violence whatsoever."

Brafman vowed Shkreli would behave if the judge let him remain free until sentencing.

"Stupid doesn’t make you violent," Brafman said. "Sometimes stupid makes you stupid."

Shkreli was just engaging in political satire in his comments about Clinton, Brafman said.

The judge wasn’t buying it.

"What is so funny about this?” a visibly angry Matsumoto demanded. “He’s soliciting an assault on another person in exchange for $5,000. Under the facts and circumstances, I’m going to respectfully deny your request to change my mind. I can’t say with any certainty that the threats have not been taken seriously by anybody.”

The case is U.S. v. Shkreli, 15-cr-637, U.S. District Court, Eastern District of New York (Brooklyn).
