Hushpuppi To Be Sentenced September 21
Hushpuppi was initially scheduled for sentencing on February 14 but it was moved to July 11 before it was again postponed to September 21, 2022.
The United States Attorney’s Office for Central District of California, Los Angeles, has confirmed that Internet fraudster, Ramon Abbas, popularly known as Hushpuppi, will be sentenced on September 21, 2022.
This was disclosed to Channels Television via email by the court’s Director of Media Relations, Thom Mrozek, on Friday.
Since Hushpuppi’s conviction last year for alleged $1.1 million fraud, the court has moved his sentence date at least three times. Hushpuppi was initially scheduled for sentencing on February 14 but it was moved to July 11 before it was again postponed to September 21, 2022.
Regarding exactly when 39-year-old Hushpuppi would be sentenced by the court, Mrozek said the suspect had pleaded guilty and would be sentenced later this year.
“Mr. Abbas is currently scheduled to be sentenced by a federal judge in Los Angeles on September 21,” he said.
Hushpuppi had entered a plea bargain and pleaded guilty to charges including money laundering, wire fraud, amongst others brought against him by the court.
According to court documents, he risks “20 years’ imprisonment; a 3-year period of supervised release; a fine of $500,000 or twice the gross gain or gross loss resulting from the offense”.
He was arrested in Dubai in June 2020 alongside 12 others and extradited to the US for prosecution.
