NYU Scammer Cites Stroke In Bid For Prison Delay

May 1 2007 | 1:50pm ET

Hakan Yalincak, the former New York University student whose primary extracurricular activity was running a hedge fund scam, says he needs more time before going to prison for a three-and-a-half year term. Why? Well, he says he may have suffered a stroke.

Yalincak asked a federal judge in New Haven, Conn., to grant him 30 more days before he reports to prison, currently scheduled for next week, according to the Associated Press. Apparently, an extra month should cure all that ails the 22-year-old, including droopy eye and the possible stroke.

In addition to prison time, Yalincak was ordered to pay more than $4 million in restitution last month.
