Trump Chief Financial Officer Allen Weisselberg plead guilty to 15 counts today as expected.
The charges included tax fraud, grand larceny and falsifying business records.
His guilty plea was entered in exchange for agreeing to testify in court against The Trump Corporation and the Trump Payroll Corporation.
Weisselberg will serve five month in prison and will be under probation for five years following his prison stay.
Nicholas Gravante, an attorney for Weisselberg, said “Rather than risk the possibility of 15 years in prison, he has agreed to serve 100 days. We are glad to have this behind him.”
Gravante also told NPR that he expects that Weisselberg will end up serving less than 5 months behind bars.
Weisselberg, 74, was charged back in 2021 along with the Trump Organization for evading taxes for concealing income which was used to secure private school tuition, automobiles, and a luxury apartment.
Former President Donald Trump has not been charged in the scheme.
