Cohen Jail Sentence "Fair and Reasonable" according to David S. Weinstein
Hinshaw partner and former federal prosecutor David S. Weinstein is quoted in Darren Samuelsohn's Politico report on the 3-year jail sentence handed down today to longtime Donald Trump lawyer Michael Cohen. Cohen had previously pled guilty to a series of tax fraud and lying charges.
Weinstein called the sentence "fair and reasonable" that "sends a message" to others who consider committing similar crimes.
For those of you who have been following or listening to me about #Cohen this is the sentence that I felt he would receive and that was appropriate given all of the factors involved. https://t.co/tvU1yQ9p8u— David S. Weinstein (@DavidSWeinstein) December 12, 2018
