CTV News

A federal judge denied a request by the former head of South American soccer to be given compassionate release from prison because of the new coronavirus pandemic but reserved judgment Friday on his request for release on bail pending his appeal.

U.S. District Judge Pamela K. Chen in Brooklyn said Juan Angel Napout had not exhausted his administrative remedies with the Federal Bureau of Prisons in seeking compassionate release.

Napout was convicted in December 2017 of accepting bribes, and his lawyers moved to reduce Napout's sentence to time served or to let him to serve the next six months at his condominium in South Florida or for release until the appeal is decided.
