Ex-Trump Organization CEO sentenced to 5 months for perjury

 April 11, 2024

Allen Weisselberg, the former chief financial officer for the Trump Organization, was sentenced to five months in prison on April 10 after previously making a deal with prosecutors regarding his perjury charges.

On March 4, Allen Weisselberg agreed to plead guilty on two felony counts over testimony he gave during a 2020 deposition with New York Attorney General Letitia James' office related to the size and value of Donald Trump's property.

Weisselberg appeared in court in on April 10. He was wearing track pants and a face mask according to images released from the court.

He was then asked if he had anything he wanted to say before sentencing, even though everyone there already knew exactly what was coming: a three-month prison sentence.

He responded with only three words:

No, your honor.

Do you think Trump could be impacted by this sentencing?

"Once again, someone from Trump's inner circle is going to jail for having covered up for Trump's own misdeeds," attorney Bradley Moss said of the sentencing. "The bigger question is whether the scope of Weisselberg's admitted deceit has longer criminal tentacles implicating others at the company and the legal team, or if it will all just fall on him."
