Paul Manafort (Trump’s Former Campaign Chair) Sentenced To 7.5 Total Years In Prison After Being Charged With Crimes Related To His Work With Pro-Russian Group In Ukraine And Conspiracy Against The U.S.
Trump’s former campaign chair Paul Manafort was sentenced to 7.5 total years in prison in March 2019.
Earlier in March 2019 he was sentenced to 47 months behind bars “for tax and bank fraud related to his work advising Ukrainian politicians, a significant break from sentencing guidelines that called for a 20-year prison term.”
On March 13, 2019 he was sentenced to an additional 43 months after “he pleaded guilty to two criminal charges: conspiracy against the U.S. and conspiracy witness tampering, which he committed after his arrest.”
Manafort was originally charged in October 2017 in a 12-count indictment that included conspiracy to launder money and making false statements in connection with their work advising a pro-Russian group in Ukraine.
