Cohen Sentenced to 3 Years in Federal Prison

Jordan Kirkland - December 12th, 2018

On Wednesday, a federal judge sentenced Michael Cohen, the former lawyer for President Trump, to three years in prison following Cohen's guilty pleas to a number of political and finance crimes.

Those three years of imprisonment would be followed by three years of supervised release, and Cohen also is subject to forfeiture of $500,000, restitution of $1.4 million and a $50,000 fine.

The sentencing in a federal court in Manhattan capped the downfall of Cohen, who was once an important ally to Trump. Instead, Cohen ended up being the prominent figure in the inquiry into payments to a porn star and a former Playboy model before the 2016 election.
