In a court filing released on Tuesday, Mr Bankman-Fried’s lawyers claimed the FTX founder should only serve up to six years for his role in the fraud.

This is in response to a recommendation from government officials who have called for Mr Bankman-Fried to spend 100 years behind bars.

Umm, why?

In a legal filing, Mr Bankman-Fried’s lawyer, Marc Mukasey, urged the judge to implement a more lenient sentence because of his client’s autism, mental health and philanthropic endeavours.

So, because he spent the stolen cash on vanity and ego projects his sentence should be reduced?

Aha, aha.

  1. philanthropic endeavours

    I think that is code for “donations to the Democrat party”, giving the judge a convenient leniency hook.

  2. Isn’t this the ‘But I’m just an orphan’ defence to having murdered your parents?

    I fully expect it to work, I’d put money on him being out of jail inside a decade. He’s a fully paid up elite member of the Democrat nomenklatura, they’ll look after him.

  3. Not to mention his tailor, Grist.

    Autism? Since when? He seemed to have been having a great time chilling with his bros on that Caribbean island, and was pretty good at raising money from billionaire mugs. Superficial charm is associated with psychopathy not autism.

  4. Nick Leeson only spent four years inside following his early release in 1999 on account of being diagnosed with cancer. A quarter of a century later he’s still ticking along.

    P.s. Ernest Saunders (also still ticking along at age 88) says “hold my beer”.
