A jury will begin deliberations on Monday in the trial on securities fraud charges against the entrepreneur Martin Shkreli, who faces up to 20 years in prison. As arguments wrapped up in federal court in Brooklyn, New York, Shkreli, known to many as â€œthe most hated man in Americaâ€�, was accused by government prosecutors of telling â€œlies upon liesâ€� to investors and regarding himself as â€œabove the lawâ€�. In terminology reminiscent of one of his idols, Donald Trump, Shkreli used Facebook to tell his fans he was the victim of a witch-hunt.
