Will the jury find Sam Bankman-Fried guilty of any federal crime in his trial that began on 3 October 2023?
Closed Nov 02, 2023 11:30PM UTC
FTX founder Sam Bankman-Fried's federal trial in the Southern District of New York began on 3 October 2023, in which he is facing seven criminal charges (NPR, Axios, CNN). A guilty or no contest plea without a verdict from the jury would not count. If the judge declares a mistrial or dismisses the charges, the question would close "No." The granting of a motion for a judgment of acquittal after the jury reaches a verdict would be immaterial, and appeals and litigation subsequent to a trial are immaterial (Cornell). If the trial is still underway as of the closing date of this question, the closing date will be extended.
The question closed "Yes" with a closing date of 2 November 2023.
