Bankman-Fried stepped into the courtroom for the first time since his prison term to address potential conflicts associated with lawyers such as Marc Mukasey and Torrey Young.

Bankman-Fried is expected to be present for the sentencing hearing on March 28. Bankman-Fried filed for bankruptcy after resigning as CEO of FTX and was convicted on fraud charges. Prosecutors are proposing not to proceed to a second trial. Bankman-Fried's deadline to submit sentencing recommendations has been extended until February 27.

Bankman-Fried has agreed to conflict-free legal representation with attorneys Mukasey and Young, Inner City Press reported. In the process, former Celsius CEO Alex Mashinsky took a similar step. The hearing in the District Court for the Southern District of New York marked Bankman-Fried's first appearance outside prison. Although the media generally did not pay much attention to the situation, photos of the former CEO with inmates were published.

Mukasey and Young continued to represent Bankman-Fried and Mashinsky, while lawyers like Christian Everdell and Mark Cohen withdrew. Bankman-Fried is scheduled to appear before Judge Lewis Kaplan for sentencing.
