A United States Central District Court in California has sentenced alleged Nigerian cyber fraudster, Ramon Abbas popularly known as Hushpuppi to 11 years imprisonment for cyber fraud.

As reported by Leadership, Hushpuppi, who had already spent two years in prison, is now expected to spend nine more years behind bars in the US.

The controversial social media celebrity was arrested in Dubai, the United Arab Emirates (UAE) in June 2020 alongside 12 accomplices over allegations of hacking, impersonation, scamming, banking fraud, and identity theft, and thereafter extradited to the US for prosecution.

He was also accused of extensive fraud scheme that robbed his victims of their money in the U.S, Qatar, the United Kingdom, and other places.

He was then extradited to the United States where he was charged with fraud and money laundering.

In July 2021, he agreed to plead guilty to the multi-million-dollar fraud charges slammed against him by the American government.

He then entered into a plea bargain agreement with the US government in July 2021 in the expectation of getting a lighter punishment.

The socialite however bagged only 11 years in prison after he appealed to US Judge Otis Wright to temper justice with mercy and a lighter jail term after scoring high in cleaning activities while in prison.
