Hushpuppi's Associate, Mr. Woodberry Sentenced to Eight Years in Prison by U.S Court


Mr Woodberry who is a known associate of imprisoned Nigerian fraudster, Hushpuppi, has been sentenced to eight years and three months in prison by Judge Robert Gettleman of the United States District Court for the Northern District of Illinois in Chicago, after being convicted on one count of fraud.


It was also gathered that seven other counts were dismissed following a plea bargain in April. The convict is expected to surrender to U.S. Marshal Service for onward transfer to the Federal Correctional Institution in Danbury, Connecticut, where his family members, especially his American fiancĂ©e, would be allowed to visit him. 


Mr Woodberry will be deported after serving out his prison sentence.


Mr. Woodberry will pay seven victims about $8 million in restitution. Meanwhile, the court waived all interests on the restitution value. 


Prosecutors who discovered that he had 152 bitcoins, had sought for the court's permission to sell it off. A 30-day notice was issued to the public for anyone with interest in the assets to file claims, but no one with legitimate interest turned up at the time of Mr. Woodberry’s sentencing. 


He is expected to forfeit items in the Dubai police custody, such as one Rolls Royce, Lamborghini Urus, Mercedes-Benz G-Class AMG G55, four Rolex watches, one Patek Philippe watch, and three Audemars Piguet watches. 


Mr. Woodberry will also forfeit three gold and diamond-studded rings, five gold bracelets and two gold bracelet keys, six gold neck chains, one gold and diamond-studded necklace, one small gold nugget, two bank cards, about $1,835 in Emirati dirhams, and approximately $15.45 in South African rands.
