Former Trump campaign chairman Paul Manafort appeared in court Friday in a wheelchair for a hearing to set his sentencing date, as lawyers claimed his terms of confinement were negatively affecting his health.
Federal Judge T.S. Ellis III set a sentencing date for Feb. 8, 2019, pertaining to Manafort’s conviction in August in his Virginia trial.
The article goes on to state the following:
“I’m not willing to go on endlessly,” Ellis said, referring to the government’s preference for sentencing to occur after Manafort completes his cooperation with Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s investigation as part of a separate plea deal. “I do not extend sentencing in circumstances like this.”
But in a startling scene, Manafort, 69, was wheeled into the Alexandria courtroom Friday wearing a prison jumpsuit with “Alexandria inmate” emblazoned on the back.
