I am reading this press release of the U.S. Attorney’s Office for the Northern District of California.
The attorney states that:
Mason Sheppard, aka “Chaewon,” 19, of Bognor Regis, in the United Kingdom, was charged in a criminal complaint in the Northern District of California with conspiracy to commit wire fraud, conspiracy to commit money laundering, and the intentional access of a protected computer.
So the defendant appears to be located in the UK and is being charged in the US.
- How would the trial work out? The guy would appoint his US trusted lawyer to defend him?
- What if the guy wants to testify? He would flee in the US or Zoom would work out?
- Suppose the guy is sentenced to 40 years in prison. How would it work out? The FBI would fly to UK, take the guy, force him into the plane, flight back to US and put him in prison? Or the guy would be sent to a UK prison?
