Special counsel Robert Mueller’s prosecutors said Paul Manafort could go to prison for approximately 19 to 24 years and be required to pay fines and restitution totaling more than $28 million.

In a sentencing memo filed in federal court in the Eastern District of Virginia, prosecutors said that under sentencing guidelines Manafort, who was President Donald Trump’s campaign chairman, could get a long sentence and heavy fine.

A longtime fixture in Republican politics, Manafort was convicted in August on five counts of tax fraud, one count of failure to file a report of foreign bank and financial accounts, and two counts of bank fraud

“For a decade, Manafort repeatedly violated the law,” the sentencing memo says. “Considering only the crimes charged in this district, they make plain that Manafort chose to engage in a sophisticated scheme to hide millions of dollars from United States authorities.”
