Manafort given 7 years, indicted in new case
Federal judge tacks on 43 months to former Trump campaign chair sentence

By Michael Hernandez

WASHINGTON (AA) - Former Donald Trump campaign chairman Paul Manafort now faces a combined sentence of more than seven years behind bars following his second federal prison sentence.

Manafort received 43 more months in prison after being sentenced last week to nearly four years in a separate financial crimes case.

The new sentence, handed down by Judge Amy Berman Jackson, was tied to crimes the soon-to-be 70-year-old pleaded guilty to last year.

That plea agreement allowed for his term to be served concurrently with any sentence he received from the case in Virginia.

But Jackson previously determined Manafort violated the terms of his plea deal with Special Counsel Robert Mueller's team.

He is expected to receive credit for the nine months he has already served in jail as proceedings carried on.

Manafort was indicted in a separate state case in New York just minutes after his sentence was handed down Wednesday.

He faces a 16-count indictment in a case the U.S. president could not issue a pardon in. The charges are tied to alleged efforts to falsify financial documents in order to secure loans worth millions of dollars.

Presidents can issue pardons in federal cases, but not state ones.
