Since being convicted of fraud last year, a disgraced cryptocurrency mogul has taken steps to secure a lenient sentence and challenge the public perception of his case. While behind bars, he has hired a new lawyer known for courtroom theatrics and assembled a team of sympathetic law professors and former employees of the collapsed cryptocurrency exchange he founded. His parents, both law professors, have also been actively involved in his defense. Despite the efforts, the chances of reversing his conviction are slim. Prosecutors are expected to present their own sentencing recommendation next month.
