President Trump’s former campaign chairman Paul Manafort was sentenced in a Washington, DC, courtroom today, less than a week after he was sentenced in Virginia to 47 months in prison for financial fraud convictions.
Manafort was sentenced on two charges — conspiracy against the US and conspiracy to obstruct justice for attempting to tamper with witnesses. Judge Amy Berman Jackson could have given Manafort a maximum of 10 years but decided to hand down a seven year sentence with credit for times served and with 30 months of the sentence running concurrently. Accordingly today’s sentencing adds 43 months in prison, on top of his sentence he received last week from the court in Virginia for a total of 90 months. That sentence can be reduced for time off for good behavior.
