On Thursday, former Trump Organization CFO, Allen Weisselberg, plead guilty to tax fraud.

Weisselberg agreed to pay nearly $2 million in taxes, interest, and penalties. He will also serve five months at the Rikers Island jail and do an additional five years of probation. 

Additionally, if he fails to pay back the taxes or doesn’t testify truthfully at the Trump Organization trial this fall, he could face another 15 years in prison.

“Instead of paying his fair share like everyone else, Weisselberg had the Trump Organization provide him with a rent-free apartment, expensive cars, private school tuition for his grandchildren, and new furniture — all without paying required taxes,” said Manhattan District Attorney Alvin Bragg.
