LIVE: Michael Cohen sentenced to 3 years in federal prison

Published on December 12, 2018 by

Former Trump attorney Michael Cohen has been sentenced by a federal judge in Manhattan to three years in federal prison, followed by three years of supervised release for the eight counts brought by the U.S. attorney in the Southern District of New York, in a sentencing hearing in which Cohen said he acted out of “blind loyalty” to President Trump.

That sentencing stemmed from Cohen pleading guilty to campaign finance violations related to payments to women alleging affairs with Mr. Trump will serve his term concurrently with a two-month sentenced imposed for lying to Congress, a charge brought by special counsel Robert Mueller. The court is fining him $50,000 for both cases.
