Trump's Former Lawyer Michael Cohen Heads to Prison

Michael Cohen will join the likes of Michael

For much of the day, Cohen "can pretty much do what he wants", Mr Frantz said.

Cohen then got into a black vehicle and drove off.

Trump has blasted Cohen, calling him a "rat" as well as a "bad lawyer and fraudster".

Cohen testified publicly before the House Oversight Committee in February, armed with evidence appearing to implicate the President: copies of checks signed by Trump and his son Donald Trump Jr. that Cohen said were used to reimburse him for some of the hush money.

The 52-year-old Cohen will be housed in dorm-like accommodations at the facility's minimum-security camp, which prison consultants say has become a destination for Jewish inmates due to its proximity to New York City's Jewish and upstate New York's Orthodox Jewish enclaves.

But Cohen should avoid acting like he's still in spotlight, said Jack Donson, a former Otisville case manager who advises white-collar criminals on what to expect in prison.

Michael Cohen is set to begin a three-year prison sentence for crimes including campaign finance violations related to hush-money payments made on Donald Trump's behalf.

Practicing Jews like Cohen who are sentenced to federal prison often request to be placed at Otisville because it provides kosher meals and detainees are allowed to follow the Shabbat day of rest. "Trump Moscow was a fantasy that no one in the office took seriously".

"Cohen is still only Trump Co person going to jail". For more than a decade, Cohen served as Trump's personal lawyer and self-described "fixer".

George Sorial, the Trump Organization's executive vice president, argues in the op-ed that Cohen frequently exaggerated his role within the Trump Organization, despite having a reputation as the man who cleaned up President Donald Trump's messes by paying off former mistresses. Cohen and his wife, Laura Shusterman, 49, have two adult children, Samantha and Jake.

His prison time could be reduced by about 15 percent for good behavior. He has also said that Cohen should have known the payments were illegal.

Lanny Davis, spokesman for Cohen, issued a statement saying Cohen "will continue to be accessible to Congress and to federal, state and local law enforcement".

Cohen had fought to delay or reduce his sentence but failed in a last-ditch effort to convince federal prosecutors that his co-operation in various investigations related to Trump warranted leniency.

"I take full responsibility for each act that I pled guilty to", Cohen said at the time.

Federal prosecutors have said Trump directed Cohen to arrange the payments to buy the silence of porn actress Stormy Daniels and former Playboy model Karen McDougal in the run-up to the 2016 election. Cohen will begin a three-year prison sentence for crimes including campaign finance violations.
