Sam Bankman-Fried Wins Approval to Get ‘Uninterrupted Access’ to Adderall in Prison

Cryptocurrency scammer and Democrat donor Sam Bankman-Fried has gained access to Adderall while he is in jail awaiting trial, according to reports.

SBF attorney Mark Cohen wrote a letter to Judge Lewis Kaplan asking his client to have “uninterrupted access to his daily prescribed medications while in jail.

According to the letter, Sam Bankman-Fried has received psychiatric care and was prescribed Adderall for treatment of attention deficit hyperactivity disorder or ADHD, The Blaze media reported.

“For over five years, Mr. Bankman-Fried has been prescribed Emsam 9mg/24 hrs transdermal patch for the treatment of depression, and for the past three years, Mr. Bankman-Fried has been prescribed Adderall 10mg tablets, 3-4x/day for the treatment of ADHD,” Cohen wrote.

“Without these medications, Mr. Bankman-Fried will experience a return of his depression and ADHD symptoms, which will severely impact his ability to assist in his own defense,” the letter claimed.

Sam Bankman-Fried used stolen customer funds to make over $100m in campaign contributions ahead of the 2022 US midterm elections; federal prosecutors said this week in the new indictment.

The 31-year-old former billionaire is charged with seven counts of conspiracy and fraud over the collapse of the exchange.

He has previously pleaded not guilty.

Last week, Sam Bankman Fried was jailed for witness tampering.

“The defendant’s attempts to tamper with witnesses and interfere with the Government’s and public’s right to a fair trial and the due administration of justice, and his pattern of circumventing his bail conditions in that pursuit, demonstrate that no set of pretrial release conditions can adequately assure the safety of the community and that the defendant is unlikely to fully abide by any conditions of release.”

Bankman-Fried’s personal fortune was once estimated at $26bn, and he was one of the biggest political donors in Washington.

Watch

The indictment alleges that Bankman-Fried concealed the fact that FTX customer deposits were a source of those donations by directing that money from FTX’s sister trading firm, Alameda, be wired to FTX executives’ personal bank accounts. Those executives then make donations in their own names, evading restrictions on certain types of political contributions, and “thereby maximize FTX’s political influence,” The Guardian reports.
