Ramon Abbas, alias ‘Hushpuppi,’ an internet fraudster, has asked for a reduced prison sentence because he has been attentive throughout his incarceration.

He made the request to United States Judge Otis Wright, according to Peoples Gazette, as he called for justice to be tempered with mercy during his sentencing later this month.

Hushpuppi, who was arrested in 2020 for multimillion-dollar fraud, claimed to have changed his ways after being ranked as one of the best at the Correctional facility in terms of cleaning chores.

Ramon’s record, which included part of his brief disputing prosecutors’ sentencing recommendations, revealed that he functioned effectively and connected well with other inmates, according to the Peoples Gazette.

It was also uncovered that his report card from the Central Valley workshop for criminals stated that he performed “very well” in attitude, quality of work, reliability, and productivity between July 2021, when he enrolled, and November 2021, when he finished work.

“He is currently working within his prison washing windows and showers—for which he has earned outstanding personal ratings,” his attorney, Louis Shapiro, noted in a memorandum dated September 5.

The prosecution and defense have been arguing about the appropriate punishment for Abbas, who was arrested in Dubai in June 2020 and then transferred to a US prison as his trial advanced.

While the prosecution, led by Assistant US Attorney Khaldoun Shobaki, sought 11 years in prison and $2.2 million in restitution and fines, Hushpuppi’s counsel contended that his client had changed in prison and should be sentenced for less than two years.

According to Shapiro, Abbas has three minor children in London, the United States, and Dubai, as well as ailing parents in Nigeria.

The judge will hear the prosecution and defense sentencing arguments on September 21 before making his final decision in the case.
