Lawyer Michale Cohan Sentenced to Three Years in Federal Prison
President Donald Trump’s former lawyer was sentenced to federal prison earlier today after admitting guilt for a string of crimes. Michael Cohen was sentenced to three years in prison after pleading guilty to evading $1.4 million in taxes to his personal business in addition to breaking campaign finance laws and more.
The Associated Press reports that Cohen also admitted to lying to Congress about Trump’s business dealings with Russia. The former lawyer is now the first and so far, only member of Trump’s circle during two years of investigations to go into open court and implicate the president in a crime. Cohen is ordered to surrender March 6th, 2019.
