(CBS NEWS) – Judge Amy Berman Jackson has handed down the District of Columbia sentence to former Trump campaign chairman Paul Manafort: Combined with the sentencing in a separate case last week, Manafort will ultimately spend more than 7 years behind bars.
Jackson sentenced Manafort to 73 months, or just over 6 years. He was previously sentenced in Virginia to 47 months, or just under four years.
Jackson imposed a 30-month overlap with the Virginia sentence, so the total is 90 months, or 7.5 years. He has already been in detention for nine months, leaving 81 months to serve.
Manafort apologized in court, as he faced his sentencing in the District of Columbia on two counts — conspiracy against the United States and conspiracy to obstruct justice on Wednesday.
