Former Trump Campaign Manager Paul Manafort was sentenced in a Virginia court room Thursday to nearly 4 years in prison for bank and tax fraud.

He was also ordered to pay millions of dollars in restitution and a $50,000 fine.

The judge in the case said he would give Manafort 9 months credit for time already served. Manafort had faced up to 24 years in prison.

Manafort faces sentencing next week in Federal court in Washington D.C. in a separate case for conspiracy against the United States and conspiracy to obstruct justice.

Manafort was Trump's campaign manager from June to August 2016.
