Hushpuppi Finally Jailed 11 Years
He was slammed with the 11 years jail term by the United States Central District Court in California for fraud and money laundering.
Kanyi Daily recalled that Hushpuppi was arrested in June 2020 in Dubai over an extensive fraud scheme that robbed victims of their money in the U.S, Qatar, the United Kingdom, and other places.
The fraudster was then extracted to the United States where he was charged with fraud and money laundering, multiple counts of hacking, impersonation, scamming, banking fraud, and identity theft.
Hushpuppi pleaded guilty to the charges of conspiracy to engage in money laundering.
By the sentence, he will now spend only years in jail 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 adventure, and regrets.
