Paul Manafort was sentenced to 73 months in prison on Wednesday in the former Trump campaign chair's second of two federal criminal cases.

The Wednesday sentence, issued by U.S. District Judge Amy Berman Jackson in Washington, D.C., came in response to Manafort's guilty plea to witness tampering and unregistered lobbying. It also comes after Manafort was sentenced to 47 months in prison last week, receiving nine months credit for time already served.
