Sam Bankman-Fried’s Bahamas prison perks included cable TV, air conditioning: report

By New York Post

Disgraced FTX founder Sam Bankman-Fried was kept away from the general prison population and enjoyed special perks such as air-conditioning and cable TV during his short stint at Fox Hill, according to a report Wednesday.

Bankman-Fried, who agreed to be extradited to the US on Wednesday after eight days at the notorious Bahamas prison, was kept with a handful of other prisoners in the facility’s sick wing, Bloomberg reported, citing unnamed prison officials.

He was given his own cot in the rat-and-maggot-infested facility in what the outlet described as a “luxury” compared to other inmates. Bankman-Fried also had access to air-conditioning “from a nearby inspector’s office, as well as running water and a toilet.”
