    Sam Bankman-Fried’s brother: ‘His life would be wasted in prison’

    The former FTX CEO’s mother, father, and brother all wrote letters to Judge Lewis Kaplan suggesting that SBF’s lack of social awareness could lead to problems in prison.
    Lawyers for Sam “SBF” Bankman-Fried included 29 letters of support of clemency for the former FTX CEO as a federal judge prepares to decide his sentence, including recommendations from his immediate family.

    In a Feb. 27 filing in United States District Court for the Southern District of New York, SBF’s lawyers attached letters from Barbara Fried, Joseph Bankman, and Gabriel Bankman-Fried — the former CEO’s mother, father, and brother, respectively. Perhaps predictably, all three asked for a light sentence for Bankman-Fried’s seven felony charges, delving into the 31-year-old’s childhood, personality, and role at FTX.

    “Sam has made mistakes, but his life would be wasted in prison,” said Gabriel. “He has great gifts to offer the world.”
