Michael Cohen was sent back to jail on Thursday after he was spotted dining at a Manhattan restaurant, an action which violated his home-containment rules.
Cohen is serving time after he pleaded guilty in 2018 to campaign finance violations related to hush payments he made to two women who claim they had affairs with Trump before he was president.
From Fox News:
Cohen’s attorney Jeffrey Levine told Fox News that Cohen had been negotiating terms of home confinement with an ankle bracelet and had traveled to the offices of federal prosecutors in the Southern District of New York to “discuss terms and conditions” of federal monitoring.
Levine said that rather than complete the discussions, parole officials told Cohen and Levine that the conversation was over and called the U.S. Marshall’s service to take Cohen into custody.
Recent reports said Cohen was seen at a restaurant in Manhattan, which raised concerns that he was in violation of his home confinement terms. Levine did not say whether this is connected to his client going back behind bars.
Cohen was released from detention in May and allowed to serve time at home because of health concerns related to the coronavirus pandemic – that is, until Thursday. What’s your take on this, PLEASE LEAVE A COMMENT IN THE COMMENT SECTION BELOW…
