Ethereum Dev Virgil Griffith Pleads Not Guilty to Violating North Korea Sanctions
Ethereum developer Virgil Griffith pleaded not guilty to a charge of conspiracy to violate the International Emergency Economic Powers Act on Thursday.
Attorneys for Virgil Griffith want the U.S. government to specify the charges he’s facing rather than a broad claim that he violated U.S. sanctions.
The motion, filed by Brian Klein, claims the indictment of Griffith doesn't "specify any alleged overt facts," and contains no actual allegation of fact.
Ethereum developer Virgil Griffith is likely headed to trial on charges of violating international sanctions, after a Tuesday hearing where a federal judge clarified what's being argued.
Brian Klein has spent the last few years representing crypto OGs against the government and each other. His latest high-profile project is to keep Ethereum developer Virgil Griffith out of jail.
Prosecutors appear to have a strong case against Virgil Griffith, the ethereum developer charged with conspiring to aid North Korea, legal experts say.
