The United States Central District Court in California has sentenced Ramon Abbas, a socialite better known by his stage name Hushpuppi, to 11 years in jail.
Although the celebrity has already served two years in prison, he will only serve nine years in the United States prison system.
Remember when Hushpuppi was apprehended in Dubai in June 2020 as part of an extensive fraud and money-laundering enterprise that defrauded individuals across numerous nations?
He entered a guilty plea to conspiring to launder money with a number of individuals both inside and outside the United states order to speed up the legal process.
He later appealed to US Judge Otis Wright, who sentenced him to 11 years in prison because he performed well in prison cleaning assignments.
Hushpuppi sent a final plea to Judge Otis Wright in the form of a letter to the court in which he detailed his wealth source, criminal exploits, and remorse.
He said he was sorry for making his family members feel ashamed and praised the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) for their diligent work in bringing him to justice.
Wealthy Nigerian living in Dubai Raymond Igbalode, also known as Hushpuppi, was detained in 2020 by the Federal Bureau of Intelligence and the International Police on suspicion of money laundering after several cases of fraud were connected to them.
He and his friend Woodberry were pulled up together in Dubai.
Sources claim that Interpol apprehended Hushpuppi for allegedly defrauding $35 million by giving $35 million worth of Covid-19 ventilators to Native Americans during the Corona Virus Pandemic.
