Reza Zarrab pleads guilty to bribing US jail guard to obtain alcohol, cell phone
Turkish-Iranian businessman Reza Zarrab on Nov. 28 pleaded guilty to a charge that he bribed a U.S. jail guard to obtain alcohol and a cell phone last year, according to court records made public.
The Nov. 28 records revealed that Zarrab pleaded guilty on Oct. 26 to six charges related to U.S. sanctions against Iran, Reuters reported.
However, the charge does not say how Zarrab used the phone.
His lawyer, Benjamin Brafman, declined to comment.
Separately, Victor Rocco, a lawyer for Turkish banker Hakan Atilla, also claimed that Zarrab even attempted to bring women into the prison by bribing guards as well as alcohol, drugs and food.
