Paul Manafort just got sentenced by a judge for an additional 43 months in prison.
He was actually sentenced for more time, however 30 months was allowed by the judge to be concurrent.
Here’s what we know:
BREAKING: Paul Manafort has been sentenced to:— Zoe Tillman (@ZoeTillman) March 13, 2019
- Count 1: 60 months, with 30 months concurrent with EDVA sentence
- Count 2: 13 months, to run consecutive to count 1 and the EDVA sentence
Jackson says the witness tampering count warrants a consecutive sentence, but the full five-year maximum is too much— Zoe Tillman (@ZoeTillman) March 13, 2019
Judge said the "upshot" of Paul Manafort's argument for a more lenient sentence is “Look what they have done to me."— Kristine Phillips (@bykristinep) March 13, 2019
She said the "element of remorse" was "completely absent."
I’m at lunch so I may post more on this later.
