Roger Stone Sentenced to 40 Months in Prison

Roger Stone Sentenced to 40 Months in Prison

( – In November 2019, Roger Stone was found guilty of obstructing the Russia investigation and lying multiple times to the House Intelligence Committee. On Thursday, he was sentenced to three years and four months in prison. Once he’s released, he’ll have to pay $20,000 in fines and be on probation for two years.

When announcing his sentence to the courtroom, US District Judge Amy Berman Jackson said, “The truth still exists; the truth still matters.”

Stone won’t start serving time right away. Jackson first has to rule on a motion for a new trial that was requested by Stone’s attorneys last week. The request came after President Trump said one of the jurors was biased.

There’s been speculation over the past few days that Trump might pardon Stone once he received his final sentence.

It’ll be interesting to see how this turns out.
