I’m Planning Vigorous Defence to Set Hushpuppi Free – US lawyer

3

Gal Pissetzky, a top Chicago-based criminal defence attorney and the lawyer of alleged Internet fraudster, Ramon Abbas, also known as Hushpuppi, has said he has a good chance of beating the fraud allegations against him as he has planned to put up “vigorous defence to get him out of the case.”

 

Pissetzky insisted that the suspect was not guilty of the alleged scam and fraud, he told Forbes, “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 the suspect’s case would go before a jury. “There is always a chance, absolutely. That’s why they hired me and that’s why I am going to put up vigorous defence and defend him. I will give him good representation. He has a chance. In the United States of America, you have a jury system,” he said.

 

When 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.
