Former CONCACAF president Jeffrey Webb is expected to sell the lavish Georgia mansion that US prosecutors have alleged is part of the proceeds of his fraudulent activity.
The house located in a small community in eastern Atlanta is listed at 9,851 square feet, has six bedrooms, eight bathrooms and a swimming pool. The property is estimated to be valued at US$931,000. As part of a plea deal with US prosecutors Webb is expected to turn over proceeds of sale from the home to the American federal court. The property is one of several Webb owns in the state that were potentially subject to asset forfeiture proceedings.
The former CONCACAF boss has agreed to the forfeiture of more than US$6.7 million in cash and assets. Webb is currently under arrest at the Georgia mansion where he awaits sentencing on charges related to racketeering, wire fraud and money laundering conspiracies. Webb and wife Kendra Gamble-Webb will according to court documents move to another home in Georgia “in an effort to conserve their financial resources.”
The 52-year-old Webb, who pled guilty in November 2015, has successfully appealed to have his sentencing put off on four separate occasions, the latest date set for July 11. His attorneys have now also requested another extension until January 2018. Reports indicate that Webb will also apply to have the conditions of his house arrest amended to allow for “light travel” within the continental U.S. A further request, if granted, would allow the disgraced FIFA official to take domestic flights around the US to visit family and friends. The court is yet to rule on the matter.
