He’s The Best Cleaner In Prison; Have Mercy - Hushpuppi’s Lawyer To Court
Ramon ‘Hushpuppi’ Abbas has appealed to the United States Judge Otis Wright to have mercy and hand him a lighter jail term ahead of his sentencing later this month. He claims he had also become a changed person after scoring high in cleaning activities. Hushpuppi’s record seen by Peoples Gazette as part of his memorandum
countering sentencing recommendations of prosecutors showed he performed well and related well with other inmates. His report card for Central Valley workshop for prisoners showed the Internet fraudster put up very good in attitude, quality of work, dependability and productivity between July 2021 when he enrolled and the November
2021 when he completed work. He is currently working within his prison cleaning windows and showers for which he has received great personal evaluations, Mr Abbas’ lawyer Louis Shapiro wrote in the memorandum submitted on September 5. Prosecution and defence have been arguing over the appropriate sentencing for
Mr Abbas, who was first arrested in Dubai in June 2020 and summarily transferred to the prison in the U.S. as his trial continued. While the prosecution led by assistant U.S. attorney Khaldoun Shobaki demanded 11 years in prison and $2.2 million dollars in restitution and fines, Mr Shapiro said his client had become a changed person in
prison and should be handed a lighter sentence of about two years in prison. Mr Shapiro also said Mr Abbas has three minor children in London, U.S. and Dubai to care for, as well as his ailing parents in Nigeria. Mr Wright is scheduled to hear the sentencing arguments of the prosecution and defence on the September 21 before delivering his judgement in the matter.
