Former Trump lawyer Michael Cohen has pleaded guilty to lying under oath and taking part in illegal activity with the Russians, prompting a thirty-six-month sentence in Otisville Prison in New York, the prison that Forbes describes as “one of the cushiest in the nation.”
In addition to the three years required to serve, Cohen has a $50,000 fine, a $500,000 forfeiture (giving money up for wrongdoing), but will receive $1.4 million in restitution, meaning what he gets back after being in prison.
Cohen has been another figure in the Trump Administration to be proven guilty through illegal campaign finance, illegal contact, and through lying to multiple sources. Authorities are currently waiting on the final decision of which prison for him to go to.
