Hushpuppi sentencing postponed again by U.S court. What will transpire to Hushpuppi while he is incarcerated is unknown as his sentence has been postponed once more.
The U.S. Central District Court in California has delayed the sentencing of Ramon Abass, popularly known as Hushpuppi on Instagram and a well-known personality in Nigeria, until a fresh hearing.
The Instagram influencer, who was accused of multi-million dollar fraud, has pled guilt.
Hushpuppi was arrested in Dubai, United Arab Emirates (UAE), in June 2020, and later deported to the US. Since July 2021, the Nigerian Instagram sensation has been forced to serve his or her sentence in jail.
The new sentencing date was scheduled on September 21 by Judge Otis Wright, according to a story from premiumtimesng.com.
“At the request of counsel, the Sentencing is CONTINUED to 9/21/2022 at 1:30 PM before Judge Otis D. Wright II, as to Defendant Ramon Olorunwa Abbas,” the court said.
Judge Wright had planned for Hushpuppi’s sentence hearing to take place on February 14, 2022, but it was postponed to July 11 and is now being rescheduled to take place on September 21, 2020, at the counsel’s request.
