A United States judge, Otis Wright of the District Court for Central District of California has once again postponed the sentencing of embattled internet fraudster, Ramon Abbas aka Hushpuppi.

Recall that the sentence hearing was initially moved by Judge Wright from 14 February to 11 July before shifting it to 21 September and now 7 November.

Hushpuppi who’s 39 years old, who pleaded guilty to multimillion-dollar fraud charges, was billed to be sentenced on Monday, October 3, but the trial judge, Otis Wright, announced that Mr Abbas will now be sentenced on Monday, November 7, 2022.

This is coming after the fraudster wrote a letter of apology to the judge claiming that he was repentant and willing to pay back the money he’d stolen with funds from his legitimate businesses.

The court announced that:

“COUNSEL ARE NOTIFIED, the Sentencing is CONTINUED to November 7, 2022 at 11:30 a.m. as to Defendant Ramon Olorunwa Abbas.”

Hushpuppi was arrested in Dubai, the United Arab Emirate (UAE) in June 2020 alongside 12 others over allegations bordering on hacking, impersonation, scamming, banking fraud, identity theft and was extradited to the US for prosecution.
