Post navigation FTXS Bankman Fried, a former London based American lawyer is currently trying to avoid a jail sentence due to an alleged fraud. The sentencing trial is set to happen in August of 2023. The proceedings will decide whether or not the defendant will remain out of jail and on bail in the meantime. The Illinois Supreme Court ruled that the state’s ban on assault weapons and high capacity ammunition magazines is constitutional. The court’s decision overturned a prior judge’s finding that the 2013 ban violated the Illinois state constitution. The ruling means that the state’s ban on assault weapons and high capacity magazines will continue.
