A federal judge on Wednesday added 43 months to Paul Manafort’s prison term, bringing the total prison time to 7 1/2 years for the former Trump campaign chairman.

Manafort, 69, appeared before district court Judge Amy Berman Jackson in Washington, D.C., wearing a suit and seated in a wheelchair to face sentencing for the two criminal charges of conspiracy he pleaded guilty to as part of a deal with prosecutors in September. He faced a maximum of 10 years in prison for those crimes.

The article goes on to state the following:

The proceedings came just days after a federal judge in Virginia sentenced Manafort to 47 months in prison for his conviction on eight criminal charges uncovered in the course of Mueller’s investigation into Russian interference and potential coordination between the Trump campaign and Moscow.
