Possible sentencing delay for Webb

Cayman’s Jeffery Webb, former FIFA Vice-President, President of CONCACAF and the CIFA, may have another six months before he receives his sentence for his role in the the FIFA corruption scandal.

Webb’s attorney has filed a request with the US District Court asking it to adorn his sentencing date which is currently set for November 18 for approximately six months.

There seems to be no reason for the delay but Webb’s attorney stated the US Federal prosecutors had no objection to the proposed adjournment. If the court agrees it will be the second time Webb’s sentencing has been put off.

Webb plead guilty last year to several counts of fraud as part of the US led global corruption probe in football.

Shaka Hislop, ESPN Soccer Analyst and former professional football player says Webb was the man to take Caribbean football forward but was unfortunately caught up in the messy works of football bribes.

“I felt his ideas his leadership his presence is exactly what, not just what Caribbean football needed but world football needed. I was heart broken when things developed as they did, but they sometimes say you need to hit rock bottom before you bounce back and maybe that’s exactly were not just Caribbean football, but where world football is right now.”

FIFA’s Ethics Committee also found Webb guilty earlier this year banning him for life from all football-related activities.
