Michael Cohen’s Prison Date Pushed Back to May

Trump’s former personal attorney Michael Cohen on Wednesday was granted a 60-day reprieve before reporting to prison. According to a letter from Cohen’s lawyers to Judge William Pauley, Cohen requested that he be allowed to report to prison in May—rather than March—because he “recently underwent a serious medical procedure and needs to undergo intensive post-surgical therapy and be monitored by his physician for recovery.” Cohen’s lawyer also stated that his client needs to prepare to testify in front of three congressional committees at the end of the month, which will “limit” his time with family before his previous Mar. 6 reporting date. Cohen was sentenced to three years in prison last year for lying to Congress and making illegal hush-money payments, among other crimes.
