Michael Cohen is heading to prison for three years on a gross miscalculation.

He thought he could salvage his reputation and win leniency in court by helping prosecutors on the special counsel’s team investigating Russian election interference. But he withheld information about his business and other matters from Manhattan federal prosecutors, drawing a sharp rebuke and a recommendation of limited leniency.

NEW YORK >> Michael Cohen , President Donald Trump ’s once-devoted lawyer and all-around fixer, was sentenced today to three years in prison after telling a federal judge that his “blind loyalty” to his boss led him to cover up Trump ’s “dirty deeds.” Standing alone at the defense table, Cohen , 52

+ A judge sentenced U.S. President Donald Trump ’s former personal lawyer Michael Cohen to a total of three years in prison Wednesday over hush money payments to two women during the 2016 election campaign and for lying to Congress.

Now he’ll serve a prison sentence after confessing to nine felonies. He was also ordered to forfeit $500,000, pay a restitution of $1.4 million and fines totaling $100,000. He’ll have to present himself for prison on March 6.

Cohen evaded federal income taxes, participated in a scheme to pay hush money to two women on Donald Trump’s behalf before the 2016 presidential election, and lied to banks and Congress. Cohen pleaded guilty without a cooperation deal with prosecutors.

That change of heart came too late to win the judge’s sympathy. “The irony is today is the day I get my freedom back,” said Cohen, who was audibly emotional. “I have been leading a personal and mental incarceration ever since the fateful day that I accepted the offer to work for a famous real estate mogul whose business acumen I greatly admired.”

While saying he accepted full responsibility, he also expounded on his complex relationship with President Trump. “It was my duty to cover up his dirty deeds,” he said.

Cohen, who says he agreed to pay for the women’s silence at Trump’s direction, drew attacks from his onetime boss earlier this year when he started providing evidence to Special Counsel Robert Mueller and other investigators. Prosecutors in Manhattan chided him for not giving them the information they needed. On Wednesday, Cohen’s lawyer said that Cohen was now ready to do that for inquiries that could go on for years.

The Manhattan prosecutors seemed unmoved by the offer. In their memo to the court last week asking for Cohen’s imprisonment, they said that Cohen’s promise to cooperate further was of little value to them, particularly since he’d be under no obligation to do so after sentencing.

Michael Cohen , President Donald Trump ’s once-devoted lawyer and all-around fixer, was sentenced Wednesday to three years in prison . Cohen is the first and, so far, only member of Trump ’s circle during two years of investigations to go into open court and implicate the president in a crime, though

Michael Cohen , former lawyer for President Trump , was sentenced to three years in prison for crimes including hush money payments that were campaign finance violations.

In ordering his sentence, the Manhattan judge faulted him for not coming clean completely to prosecutors.

Mr. Cohen pleaded guilty to a“veritable smorgasbord of fraudulent conduct” motivated by “personal greed and ambition,” U.S. District Judge William Pauley said, adding that the crimes required “specific deterrence.”

“While Mr. Cohen was taking steps to mitigate his criminal conduct by pleading guilty and volunteering useful information to prosecutors, that does not wipe the slate clean,” Pauley said.

As the financial penalties and fines were read out, Cohen shut his eyes, shook his head and put his left hand to his face and pinched his brow. His daughter and son, who accompanied him to the hearing, sobbed.

It could have gone differently for Cohen. Former National Security Adviser Michael Flynn is heading into his own sentencing hearing next week with a recommendation of little or no prison time after cooperating fully, according to Mueller.

Before Cohen received his sentence on Wednesday, his lawyers portrayed him as an important witness who bucked the power of the presidency to expose public wrongdoing.

“‘He came forward to offer evidence against the most powerful person in our country. He did so not knowing what the result would be, not knowing how the politics would play out and not even knowing that the special counsel’s office would survive,” said Cohen lawyer Guy Petrillo.

Cohen entered courtroom accompanied by his wife, daughter and son and was embraced and kissed by several supporters. He sat at the defense table with Petrillo, looking haggard. Seated behind him were FBI agents who worked on his case.

His face reddened in court as Petrillo described the attacks Cohen has suffered from Trump and his supporters.
