Manafort apologized to the court and pled with the judge for leniency based on his role as the primary caregiver of his ailing wife.
A federal judge on Wednesday sentenced President Donald Trump’s former campaign chairman, Paul Manafort, to 43 months of additional prison time.
Washington, D.C., federal judge Amy Berman Jackson sentenced Manafort, 69, to 60 months in prison on the first of two criminal counts lodged by special counsel Robert Mueller.
But 30 of those months will be served concurrently with Manafort’s prior sentence in a separate case, also lodged by Mueller.
Jackson sentenced Manafort to 13 months of consecutive prison time on his second criminal count.
