The United State government has finally agreed to reduce the business Mogul, Hushpuppi’s sentence to 11 years.
The prosecutors in the United State have asked a federal judge to sentence Ramon Abbas to 11 years in prison and three years of supervised release for his role in a multinational conspiracy that earned him millions of dollars between 2019 and 2020.
The government recommends that the defendant be sentenced to 135 months imprisonment, followed by a three-year term of supervised release, and that defendant be ordered to pay restitution of $1,732,841.34, a fine of $500,0000, and a mandatory special assessment of $100,” the September 7 filing seen by Peoples Gazette said.
The development came more than two years after the infamous Internet fraud ringleader was arrested in Dubai in June 2020 for driving multiple schemes that targeted victims in Europe and the United States.
He pleaded guilty in April 2021 after prosecutors discovered his involvement in a separate conspiracy to defraud a Qatari businessperson, who lost $810,000 in the process of trying to obtain an elusive loan to set up an international school.
The prosecutors argued that their sentencing recommendations were appropriate considering the gravity of Hushpuppi’s crimes.
The government said one of his co-conspirators Ghaleb Alaumary was sentenced to 140 years in jail for violating the same set of criminal codes.
“By his own admission, during just an 18-month period defendant conspired to launder over $300 million,” the prosecutors said. “While much of this intended loss did not ultimately materialize, defendant’s willingness and ability to participate in large-scale money laundering highlights the seriousness of his criminal conduct.”
Mr. Abbas’ sentencing, the government argued, was reduced because he cooperated with detectives on our criminal cases under investigation and prosecution in American courts.
