The Ministry of Justice is Preparing a Harsher Sentence for Changpeng Zhao

Details of the application made by the Ministry of Justice to the court have revealed that officials are preparing for a harsher sentence for CZ.

Changpeng Zhao is claimed to be facing a potential 12-18 month prison sentence according to U.S. Sentencing Guidelines, with the Ministry of Justice allegedly gearing up to fight for a harsher penalty.

“I hope the Ministry of Justice has something in hand, or perhaps monitoring Binance will reveal even more terrifying and prosecutable offenses and other remedial requirements.”

Former Securities and Exchange Commission official John Reed Stark also predicts a likely 12-18 month prison sentence.

“Government officials will have to present stronger evidence implicating Zhao in criminal activity.”

A Positive Process for the Future

While it is emphasized that CZ’s legal process has just begun and the risks of receiving more severe penalties continue to be a topic of discussion, many experts view this situation as highly positive for the future of the crypto sector as it signals the end of a long-standing issue between the U.S. and Binance.
