A US judge on Monday ordered Martin Shkreli, former CEO of a drug company, to hand over more than 7.3 million USA dollars in assets for his role in defrauding investors.

The judge said the assets won't be seized until Shkreli has a chance to appeal.

Shkreli has been behind bars since September, when Matsumoto ordered him jailed for turned to social media and urged followers to get him a sample of former secretary of state Hillary Clinton's hair.

Shkreli, who first became infamous for hiking the price of a life-saving HIV drug, was convicted of securities fraud. Turing is now Vyera.

"Pharma Bro" Shkreli paid $2 million for the lone copy of Once Upon a Time in Shaolin in 2015 through a private broker.

A jury found Shkreli guilty last August of securities fraud charges unrelated to Daraprim. He also would be forced to forfeit other valuables including a Picasso painting and another unreleased recording that he claims he owns, "Tha Carter V" by Lil Wayne. They determined that he lied to investors about the performance of two hedge funds he ran, MSMB Capital and MSMB Healthcare.

The decision came four days before a scheduled hearing at which Shkreli faces a potential maximum prison sentence of 20 years. The defense argued unsuccessfully Shkreli should forfeit nothing.

The $7.36 million forfeiture doesn't include fines, penalty or restitution Matsumoto might impose during his sentencing.
