Hushpuppi bags 11 years prison sentence in US
Popular Instagram celebrity Ramon Abbas, aka Hushpuppi, has been sentenced to 11 years' imprisonment.
The United States Central District Court in California sentenced Hushpuppi to 11 years in jail on Friday for fraud and money laundering.
Recall that Hushpuppi was arrested in June 2020 in Dubai over an extensive fraud scheme that has robbed victims of their money in the U.S., Qatar, the United Kingdom, and other places.
He was then extradited to the United States, where he was charged with fraud and money laundering, as well as multiple counts of hacking, impersonation, scamming, banking fraud, and identity theft.
He, however, pleaded guilty to the charges of conspiracy to engage in money laundering.
Following the sentence, Hushpuppi will now spend only nine years in prison, as he had already spent two years incarcerated in the US.
Recall that Hushpuppi had appealed to Judge Otis Wright, narrating his source of wealth, criminal adventures, and regrets.
He commended the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) for doing a thorough job of bringing him to justice and apologized to his family.
