Defence Asks for a Trial Delay, and Bankman-Fried Needs Adderall to Testify

Sam Bankman-Fried’s legal team claims that without his long-release Adderall, the disgraced FTX CEO will have to miss a day of the criminal trial that may send the former crypto billionaire to prison for the rest of his life.

Bankman-Fried’s legal team asked U.S. District Judge Lewis Kaplan late on Sunday, October 15, in a late-night appeal that he be given his 12-hour extended-release 20mg Adderall dose the following morning before being brought to the courthouse for the trial, which started up again this morning at 9:30 A.M.

Bankman-Fried “has not been able to concentrate at the level he typically would,” according to Mark Cohen’s letter to Judge Kaplan, without his authorised medicine.

Bankman-Fried “has been trying his best to stay focused during the trial for the past two weeks, despite not receiving his prescribed dose of Adderall during trial hours,” the letter to the court reads.

Cohen claims that Bankman-Fried’s decision to testify or not is dependent on whether the defendant has access to a medication used to treat attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder.
