Sam Bankman-Fried tham gia buổi làm chứng cuối cùng

từ khi ông trùm tiền mã hóa "thất sủng" bị kết tội lừa đảo, những người ủng hộ vận động để được một bản án khoan hồng, trong khi các luật sư đề nghị anh phải ngồi tù không quá 6,5 năm

Since Sam Bankman-Fried was convicted (bị kết án) of fraud (lừa đảo) last year, he has hired (thuê) a new lawyer known for courtroom showmanship (kỹ thuật trình diễn phòng xử án). A group of sympathetic law professors has pushed for a reappraisal of his actions. And his parents have turned for help to former employees of FTX, the collapsed cryptocurrency exchange he founded.

From a federal detention center in Brooklyn, Mr. Bankman-Fried, 31, has continued to fight his case (vụ án) behind the scenes, as he aims for a lenient sentence and prepares to appeal his conviction. On Tuesday, his lawyers filed a legal memo in U.S. District Court in Manhattan, arguing that he should receive a prison sentence of between five and a quarter and six and a half years.

Before FTX collapsed in November 2022, Mr. Bankman-Fried was one of the most prominent figures in the renegade crypto industry, a widely celebrated billionaire (tỷ phú nổi tiếng rộng rãi) whose face was splashed across billboards and magazine covers.

In October, a federal jury convicted him of stealing $8 billion from FTX’s customers to finance political contributions, investments in other companies and lavish real estate purchases (mua bán bất động sản).
