Reporting on the unsanitary conditions inside Fox Hill, The Wall Street Journal cited a human-rights study conducted in 2021 by the U.S. State Department. According to the Journal, “Fox Hill inmates reported removing human waste by buckets and developing bed sores from lying on the bare ground.” The Journal also spoke to Farquharson, who explained that the facility makes an effort to separate the most violent inmates from the others. That said, there have been times “some inmates awaiting trial for minor crimes have been sent to the maximum-security facility.” She told the Journal, “I think they’ve got to be careful not to have him in really rough areas in the prison.”

According to a news release from the U.S. Attorney’s Office for the Southern District of New York, the eight charges against Bankman-Fried include “two counts of wire fraud conspiracy, two counts of wire fraud, and one count of conspiracy to commit money laundering, each of which carries a maximum sentence of 20 years. … [one count of] conspiracy to commit commodities fraud, [one count of] conspiracy to commit securities fraud, and [one count of] conspiracy to defraud the United States and commit campaign finance violations, each of which carries a maximum sentence of five years.” The 30-year-old former crypto king has indicated he will fight extradition to the U.S., according to a Bloomberg report. It’s impossible to predict what the future holds for Bankman-Fried, but after two months in Fox Hill, he’ll likely be begging for extradition to the U.S. This article appeared originally on The Western Journal.
