Alleged impersonations, $16M stolen as ex-Ohtani interpreter charged

Published on

Explosive new details have emerged surrounding two-time MVP Shohei Ohtani and his former longtime interpreter’s gambling controversy.

Federal authorities announced in a Los Angeles court on Thursday that Ippei Mizuhara, Ohtani’s ex-interpreter, had been charged with bank fraud. ESPN’s Alden Gonzalez reported that “it was discovered [Mizuhara] transferred more than $16M” from the Los Angeles Dodgers designated hitter’s account to an “alleged illegal sports book.”

Per Mike Vorkunov of The Athletic, bank fraud is a felony offense that can carry a “statutory maximum sentence of 30 years in federal prison.”
