- FTX founder Sam Bankman-Fried is set to be released on a $250 million bond and placed under house arrest at his parents’ California home following his first court appearance in Manhattan federal court Thursday.
- US District Judge Gabriel Gorenstein signed off on the deal that saw the accused fraudster voluntarily leave the Bahamas to face a slew of charges, including wire fraud, securities fraud, conspiracy, money laundering, and campaign finance violations. The combined charges carry a sentence of 115 years behind bars.
