(UnitedVoice.com) – Michael Cohen gives stupid criminals a bad name. He didn’t know how good he had it to be released from jail because of the coronavirus. Or maybe he did — but he blew it in a big way.
On Thursday, President Trump’s former personal lawyer was taken back into federal custody after he was busted violating the terms of his house arrest.
BREAKING / NBC News: Michael Cohen has been remanded back into the custody of federal authorities and will be sent back to jail.
This comes after pictures were taken of Cohen at a Manhattan restaurant outside of his residence this weekend. NBC's Adam Reiss reports.

Cohen had been serving a three-year sentence in New York State’s Otisville Correctional Facility and was scheduled to be released in 2021. But in May, he was furloughed along with many other criminals because of COVID-19 concerns and placed on house arrest.
Then last week, for some inexplicable reason, he decided to blow off his home confinement to go out to eat at a Park Avenue restaurant with a group of people. He was seen and photographed at this outing, so it’s no wonder that he ended up back in federal custody.
Part of the reason he was sent to prison in the first place was that he had no respect for the law. He thought he was above it. Clearly he’s learned nothing since he was arrested in 2018. Now instead of living in the comfort of his own home, he will be stuck in jail. Stupid criminal, indeed.
