Hushpuppi’s lawyer Pissetzky plans on putting out a strong defense to get Hushpuppi out of his case.
Gal Pissetzky,Hushpuppi’s lawyer has said he plans on putting out a strong defense to get Mr Ramon Abass, well known as hushpuppi out of his case.
The lawyer, spoke to Punch on Thursday, said he planned to put up “vigorous defense to get him out of the case.”
When contacted, Pissetzky also told Punch that the suspect’s case would go before a jury.
He said, “There is always a chance, absolutely. That’s why they hired me and that’s why I am going to put up vigorous defense and defend him. I will give him good representation. He has a chance. In the United States of America, you have a jury system.”
Asked if he would consider a plea bargain with the system to reduce Abbas’ sentence, Pissetzky said it was a discussion between him and his client.
“Absolutely not guilty of the charges they are accusing him of. (Abbas) was running a legitimate business and a very legitimate Instagram account and did not take part in any scam or fraud,” he said.
Pissetzky is a top Chicago-based criminal defence attorney and has been involved in many notable cases in the United States of America.
Hushpuppi along with his gang, was alleged to have defrauded 1,926,400 people from different parts of the world and stolen about 1.6bn Dirham (N168bn)
