SBF is target for assault and extortion in prison claims fellow inmate

A former New York cop and alleged pedophile has described Sam Bankman-fried as the “least physically intimidating person,” in a letter pleading for the disgraced former FTX chief to be handed a light sentence.

Writing to US district judge Lewis Kaplan, who is overseeing SBF’s sentencing, Carmine Simpson, who is currently incarcerated alongside Bankman-Fried, claimed, “I have had the honor to have gotten to know Sam over the past six months.”

He added, “Sam is the most selfless person that I have ever had the privilege to meet,” and claims that “the world would be better with Bankman-Fried out of jail.” He then reasons that “incarceration would serve no benefit.”

According to Simpson, one of the biggest “examples of Sam’s character” is that he has remained committed to his vegan diet of “undercooked rice, a scoop of disgusting-looking beans, and week-old brown lettuce.” The letter also details how he has become a target of “hazing, harassment, and assault more so than the average inmate.”

Bankman-Fried’s estimated fortune has also apparently made him a target for extortion and he is reportedly worried about ‘jailhouse snitches’ spreading false rumors to the government and press.

Simpson was arrested and charged in 2021 after he allegedly posed as a 17-year-old on social media to convince at least 46 minors and vulnerable children to send him sexually explicit photos and videos.

SBF has apparently made friends in prison

Sam has apparently been making friends in prison and recently appeared in a group photo alongside rapper and former gang member G Lock, who claimed that “Sam is more gangster than (American rapper) Tekashi 69” and that he “didn’t snitch on nobody.”

The photo taken on December 17 is said to be the first — and only — picture of Bankman-Fried since he was imprisoned in the Brooklyn Metropolitan Detention Center.

In an interview with journalist journalist Tiffany Fong, former Blood G Lock also described Bankman-Fried as “looking “scruffier than a m*********er.”

He is due to be sentenced on March 28.
