Ramon Abbas popularly known as ‘Hushpuppi’ was denied bail in a court in the Northern District of Illinois on Monday.
The self-acclaimed ‘Billionaire Gucci Master’, with the pride of having more than 2.5 million followers on Instagram, will sadly stay in detention until his trial later this year over money laundering allegations.
Ray will be taken to Los Angeles by the United States Marshal Service, and will be heavily monitored so as not to get in contact with his girlfriend’s uncle at Homewood, Illinois.
The billionaire’s trial will take place in Los Angeles where the case was filed, instead of where the case is being handled, Forbes reports.
Throughout the hearing, Hushpuppi’s lawyer denied that his client was a flight risk or a danger to the community, repeatedly rejecting the allegations made against his client by the Federal Bureau of Investigation’s affidavit posted earlier this month.
The FBI are not ready to let him go, as they claimed he was part of a network that made“hundreds of millions of dollars” from business email compromise frauds among numerous scams.
