AFTER FOUR YEARS OF DELAYS, SENTENCING OF FIFA VP JEFFREY WEBB IS TOMORROW

Jeffrey Webb



Jeffrey Webb, the former Vice President of FIFA, and the ex-president of CONCACAF, and who led guilty back in 2015 to money laundering conspiracy, racketeering and wire fraud, is scheduled to be sentenced tomorrow, September 10. Webb's sentencing was rescheduled no less than nine times, while he  was under house arrest in his Georgia mansion, raising questions about whether he was granted special privileges while testifying against his co-defendants in the massive FIFA corruption scandal.

 Some in the media have accused the defendant of continuing to enjoy a "champagne lifestyle," while under Home Confinement. Webb, who allegedly received $7m in bribes and kickbacks, invested his criminal proceeds in several homes in Georgia, the purchase price of which were far in excess of his published salary and benefits. He is also wanted for white collar crime in his native Cayman Islands.
