On Monday, Sam Bankman-Fried will be heard to explain that he will ultimately not contest his extradition to the United States. When this takes place, therefore, he should go to a prison in New York, or its outskirts, pending his trial.
Sam Bankman-Fried will consent to his extradition to the United States
Every day a new twist in the FTX case. While just two days ago we learned that Sam Bankman-Fied (SBF) repeated his request for bail, this time our Reuters colleagues report that the person concerned finally accepts his extradition.
After an initial challenge, SBF appears to be resigned, and should be heard Monday to reconsider his original request.
Once Sam Bankman-Fried’s extradition to the United States is effective, he should be transferred to Brooklyn Metropolitan Detention Center, according to attorney Zachary Margulis-Ohnuma. However, the latter indicates that the former CEO may also be imprisoned on the outskirts of New York due to the overcrowding of this prison.

Furthermore, even in the US, SBF is expected to remain in custody and risks becoming so again refuse bail. This is due to several factors. First, the seriousness of the matter, Damian Williams, the attorney for the Southern District of New York, incidentally referred to as one of “largest financial fraud in American history“.
Then there is always defendant’s risk of disappearing, as well as the location of certain funds, which remain to be defined. Attorney Michael Weinstein has developed this last point:
“The missing money gives the prosecutors a strong case that he is at risk of fleeing. I expect that if a judge grants bail, he will impose very restrictive and onerous conditions. »
On the other hand, Reuters legal sources indicate that any lawsuit regarding the case it is unlikely to happen for more than a year, which is understandable given the complexity of the case. Remember, Sam Bankman-Fried is subject to eight counts, which puts him at risk of up to a maximum of 115 years in prison.
