US court postpones sentencing of Hushpuppi
The sentencing of Nigerian Socialite, Ramon Abbas, widely known as Hushpuppi has been postponed till the 11th of July, 2022 by a United States District Court for the Central District of California.
The order which was granted by Justice Otis D. Wright was issued after Hushpuppi’s lawyers led by Louis Shapiro entered a request for postponement. Hush Puppi is expected to remain in custody in the intervening period of the delay.
Hushpuppi was previously scheduled to be sentenced on the 14th of February for duping people across different continents to the tune of millions of dollars. He pleaded guilty last year to the charges, seeking a lighter sentence.
Hushuppi risks getting a 20 years jail sentence; a 3-year period of supervised release; a fine of #236.5 Million or twice the gross gain or gross loss resulting from the offense.
