Ramon Abbas aka Hushpuppi could reportedly get a jail term of 20 years or more after he made his first appearance in a Chicago court, USA today.
Hushpuppi is reportedly facing criminal charges alleging he conspired to launder hundreds of millions of dollars from business email compromise (BEC) frauds and other scams, including schemes targeting a U.S. law firm, a foreign bank and an English Premier League soccer club.
According to the U.S. Attorney’s Office, Central District of California, Hushpuppi arrived in Chicago on Thursday evening after being expelled from the United Arab Emirates (UAE), made his initial U.S. court appearance this morning in Chicago, and he is expected to be transferred to Los Angeles in the coming weeks.
If Hushpuppi is convicted of conspiracy to engage in money laundering, he would face a statutory maximum sentence of 20 years in federal prison.
The FBI led the investigation of Abbas, and the United States Secret Service was also involved and provided substantial assistance. The FBI further thanks the government of the United Arab Emirates and the Dubai Police Department for their substantial assistance.
This case is being prosecuted by Assistant United States Attorneys Anil J. Antony and Joseph B. Woodring of the Cyber and Intellectual Property Crimes Section.
The Criminal Division’s Office of International Affairs provided substantial assistance in this matter.
