Top Criminal lawyer, Gal Pissetzky, a senior partner at Chicago law firm Pissetzky & Berliner, hired by Hushpuppi, to help extricate him from multi-million dollar fraud charges levelled against him by American authorities, says the cybercrime suspect has a good chance of beating the fraud allegations against him.
The top Chicago lawyer made this comment during an interview with Punch on Thursday, where he said he planned to put up “vigorous defense to get him out of the case,” adding that the suspect’s case would go before a jury.
His words: “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.”
When asked if he would consider a plea bargain with the system to reduce Hushpuppi’s sentence, the lawyer said it was a discussion between him and his client. Recall that Pissetzky told Forbes that the suspect was not guilty of the crimes.
“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.
