The sentencing of Nigerian fraudster Ramon Abbas, also known as Hushpuppi, has been postponed for the second time by the United States Central District Court in California.

Reports say that his new sentencing date has been set for September 21.

“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’s announcement read.

According to court documents from the United States Department of Justice (DoJ), he pleaded guilty in April 2021 to multi-million dollar fraud charges filed by the United States government.

His plea agreement, which was filed in June, detailed his involvement in a school finance scheme, as well as several other cyber and business email compromise schemes that resulted in more than $24 million in losses.

He pleaded guilty to Count Two, “Conspiracy to Engage in Money Laundering,” an offense that carries a maximum sentence of 20 years in prison, among other penalties, including full restitution, according to his plea agreement with the US government.

Hushpuppi was arrested in Dubai, the United Arab Emirate (UAE), in June 2020, and flown to the United States. In July 2021, Hushpuppi pleaded guilty to the charges and was ordered to remain in custody pending sentencing.

Judge Wright moved the sentence hearing from February 14 to July 11 and has now moved it to September 21 at the request of counsel.

He has been detained since his arrest in Dubai and extradition to the United States in June 2020. In July 2021, he entered into a plea bargain agreement with the US government in the hopes of receiving a lesser sentence. Hushpuppi will not be exempt from paying restitution despite his guilty plea.
