Cohen Granted Two Month Delay On Prison Start

CNBC reports:

President Donald Trump’s former personal lawyer Michael Cohen was granted a two-month extension of his prison surrender date Wednesday after his attorney cited his need to continue recovering from recent shoulder surgery, and to prepare for upcoming testimony before three Congressional committees.

Cohen, 52, will now enter prison on May 6 to begin his three-year sentence, Judge William Pauley ordered. Cohen was originally set to begin that sentence March 6. He pleaded guilty last year to financial crimes, lying to Congress and campaign violations related to hush money payments made to two alleged sexual partners of Trump’s.
