SBF Pleads For Pre-Trial Release Due To Poor Internet Connection

SBF Pleads For Pre-Trial Release Due To Poor Internet Connection


Disgraced businessman and former FTX CEO Sam Bankman-Fried has filed another motion for release. This time, he considered poor internet in jail to be a "valid" reason for release.

Bankman-Fried was detained and imprisoned on 11 August on suspicion of witness tampering. Since then, the businessman's attorneys have been making every effort to have their client released before the trial begins. On 6 September, Bankman-Fried filed a motion, which was denied by Judge Kaplan. The defendant's attorneys filed another motion for release on 8 September, citing poor internet, which prevents Bankman-Fried from preparing for the October hearing.

They also pointed out that promises to provide the laptop to Bankman-Fried during certain hours had not been made. Moreover, their client was unable to use the laptop on several occasions due to prison proceedings. The defendant was only able to check one document because of a poor internet connection. And this is preventing Bankman-Fried from preparing for trial.

Given Bankman-Fried's past attitude toward the court's ruling, Kaplan may deny the defendant's next motion.

Bankman-Fried was arrested in the Bahamas in December last year on charges of fraud, sponsorship of politicians and embezzlement of FTX clients' funds. The businessman has not pleaded guilty and continues to maintain his position despite the fact that other defendants in the case have pleaded guilty.
