Sam Bankman-Fried (SBF), the former CEO of the cryptocurrency exchange FTX, an inmate, has come forward with claims highlighting the adversities faced by Bankman-Fried while detained at the Brooklyn Metropolitan Detention Center. The inmate, Carmine Simpson, a former New York police officer with a controversial past, has provided a detailed account in a letter addressed to US District Judge Lewis Kaplan, who is presiding over Bankman-Fried’s sentencing. Simpson’s letter paints a picture of Bankman-Fried as a non-threatening individual who has become a target for extortion and assault behind bars.
