Hushpuppi’s trial slated for October


Popular self-acclaimed social media influencer Ramos Abass aka Hushpuppi has been arraigned in a court in California, United States, ahead of his trial on October 13.

Hushpuppi was been accused of facilitating computer intrusion, business email compromise (BEC) fraud and money laundering, wire fraud, money laundering conspiracies, international money laundering, and engaging in monetary transactions in property derived from specified unlawful activity.

He pleaded not guilty.

Reports according to PREMIUM TIMES said the prosecutors started the process of arraignment by filing necessary documents and forms after his first appearance on August 17.

Mr. Abass will be represented in court by Vicki Podberesky, a top-rated lawyer in California and Gal Pissetzky, a Chicago-based lawyer appearing pro hac vice because he is not licensed to practice outside Chicago.

Hushpuppi reportedly entered a plea, maintaining that he is not guilty of the charges.

It was also gathered that Hushpuppi pleaded that he should be prosecuted with complaints and not an indictment.
