Michael Cohen sentenced to 36 months in jail for hush money scheme with Trump
Cohen walked in to federal court just after 10 AM, with his daughter, aided by crutches, by his side.
Sentencing guidelines call for 51-63 months. The Southern District of New York suggested around 42 months.
"My weakness was a blind loyalty to Donald Trump," Cohen told the judge, saying he had been a "loyal soldier" to Trump, MSNBC reported.
"I want to apologize to the people of the United States," Cohen added.
Cohen's attorney, asking for leniency, told the judge that Cohen had the 'misfortune" of being Donald Trump's attorney.
Cohen also served as the deputy finance chairman of the Republican National Committee, despite being under federal investigation at the time. He resigned that post in June of 2018.
