U.S Court Postpones Sentencing Hushpuppi to July 11, 2022
In an order granted by Justice Otis D. Wright, United States District Court for the Central District of California has postponed the sentencing of Nigeria’s Ramon “Hushpuppi” Abbas till July 11, 2022.
This was issued after Hushpuppi’s lawyers led by Louis Shapiro entered a request for postponement.
Hushpuppi has been remanded in US prison since 2020 over charges of internet fraud, duping of people across different continents to the tune of millions of dollars. He pleaded guilty last year to the charges, seeking a lighter sentence.
He was scheduled to be sentenced on February 14, but “at the request of counsel, the sentencing is continued to July 11, 2022, at 11:00 a.m.,” the court document said after the decision was taken on February 2.
