Sam Bankman-Fried will testify at criminal trial, say defense lawyers

Sam Bankman-Fried will testify at criminal trial, say defense lawyers


Former FTX CEO Sam “SBF” Bankman-Fried will testify as part of his defense case, said his attorney Mark Cohen.

In an Oct. 25 telephone conference between SBF’s lawyers, prosecutors, and Judge Lewis Kaplan, Cohen said following the prosecution completing the presentation of its case on Oct. 26, his team planned to call three witnesses as well as Bankman-Fried to the stand. Judge Kaplan said he would allow the case to go “straight through” on Oct. 26, moving directly from the prosecutors’ final witness to the defense’s first one.

This is a developing story, and further information will be added as it becomes available.
