Judge Amy Berman Jackson handed down her sentence to Manafort early this morning. She sentenced him to 73 months in prison, and 30 months of the sentence she imposed will overlap with his Virginia sentence of just under four years. With the 47-month sentence in the Virginia case, Manafort’s total sentence is 90 months (7.5 years.)

During his sentencing in the District of Columbia on two counts; conspiracy against the United States and conspiracy to obstruct justice, it was said that Manufort actually apologized to the court.

“I want to say to you now that I am sorry for what I have done,” Manafort said.”While I cannot undo the past, I can assure that the future will be very different.”

The latest prison sentence now marks the end of a big downfall for Manafort. He is among a half-dozen people in Trump’s circle who have been charged as a result of special counsel Robert Mueller’s investigation into Russian interference in the 2016 presidential election and possible cooperation with the Trump campaign.
