Trump Lawyer Michael Cohen Sentenced To 36 Months In Prison
Donald Trump's former lawyer, Michael Cohen, has been sentenced to 36 months in prison.
The attorney admitted to handing over hush money to two of the U.S. president's alleged mistresses.
During Cohen's sentencing in New York City on Dec. 12, Judge William Pauley called the lawyer's acts as "a veritable smorgasbord of fraudulent conduct."
Cohen, 52, apologized for his actions in court.
"I take full responsibility for each act that I pled guilty to: The personal ones to me and those involving the President of the United States of America," he said.
The judge ended up giving Cohen three years for the crimes committed in New York, plus two months for lying to Congress, which will be served at the same time. He was also fined $100,000 and ordered to pay $1.4 million in restitution.
He previously pleaded guilty to lying to Congress, campaign finance violations, tax evasion, and making false statements to a financial institution.
He must report to jail on March 6.
