FTX ‘fraudster’ Sam Bankman-Fried makes second pitch for bail

Published:

Accused crypto fraudster Sam Bankman-Fried made one other bid for bail Thursday in hopes of getting sprung from a maggot-infested Bahamian lockup.

The appliance was made after a magistrate judge within the Caribbean country ordered Bankman-Fried remanded pending his potential extradition to the US, a source aware of the matter told Reuters.

Bankman-Fried was arrested Monday evening within the Bahamas and charged within the Southern District of Latest York in an eight-count federal indictment, including fraud, money laundering, conspiracy, and campaign finance violations.

He faces a maximum of 115 years in prison if convicted.

It’s unclear what argument Bankman-Fried recommend in his renewed bail application, but a neighborhood report said it might be heard on Jan. 17.

An attorney for Bankman-Fried didn’t immediately return the request for comment.

The accused crypto crook is being held at Fox Hill Prison, a notorious lockup that was the topic of a damning State Department report that detailed inhumane conditions at the power.

“Sanitation was a general problem, and cells were infested with rats, maggots, and insects,” the report states.

“Inmates removed human waste by bucket,” the federal government wrote, adding inmates are crammed into tiny cells which might be 6 feet by 10 feet.

“Some inmates developed bedsores from lying on bare ground,” the report goes on.

Bankman-Fried has signaled he intends to fight extradition to the US, where he’ll need to make a bail application with federal prosecutors in Manhattan.

The US Attorney’s Office, meanwhile, has said they intend to charge Bankman-Fried’s co-conspirators for roles in certainly one of the biggest financial frauds in US history.
