Trump executive Allen Weisselberg gets 5-month jail sentence
The Associated Press
NEW YORK (AP) – Former Trump Organization chief financial officer Allen Weisselberg has been sentenced to five months in jail for dodging taxes.
A judge imposed the punishment Tuesday at a court hearing in New York City.
The longtime executive for Donald Trump’s family company has also paid $2 million in taxes, penalties and interest.
Weisselberg was promised the five-month sentence in August when he agreed to plead guilty to 15 tax crimes.
He later testified against the company where he’s worked since the mid-1980s.
The Trump Organization was convicted last month of helping executives including Weisselberg dodge taxes.
