Webb’s sentencing set for November

Former CIFA president Jeffrey Webb has pleaded guilty in the FIFA scandal in the United States.

Cayman’s Jeffrey Webb will not learn his sentence in the FIFA racketeering investigation until at least November, according to officials in the U.S. District Court for New York State’s Eastern District.

Webb’s sentencing was adjourned Friday morning by District Court Judge Raymond Dearie until Nov. 18 at 10 a.m. No reason was given for delaying sentencing, which had been scheduled for June 3.

Webb faces potential prison time and deportation in connection with his role in the ongoing FIFA racketeering and bribery scandal.

The former FIFA vice president and president of the Cayman Islands Football Association pleaded guilty to corruption charges in the U.S. last November. The seven criminal counts include racketeering, wire fraud conspiracy and money laundering conspiracy.
