The sentencing hearing for disgraced former FIFA, CONCACAF and CIFA leader Jeffrey Webb is delayed until 18 November.
A US Federal judge in New York today postponed the hearing at the request of Webb’s lawyer Edward O’Callaghan. No reason was cited in a letter submitted to the court, according to several media sources.
Webb last year pleaded guilty to several counts of fraud as part of the U-S led global corruption probe in football. Webb was scheduled to become the first defendant sentenced in the scandal.
He’s a former FIFA Vice-President and President of CONCACAF and the Cayman Islands Football Association.
Webb was confined to house arrest at his Georgia mansion last year after posting $10 million bond following his arrest. Last month his conditions were relaxed and he’s now able to travel 50 miles from his home as opposed to the 20 miles originally included in his bond conditions.
