Paul Manafort’s Convictions in DC and VA: What Sentence Might He Receive?

We review the DC and EDVA convictions of Paul Manafort as well as sentencing relevant data from the U.S. Sentencing Commission. We predict that Mr. Manafort will receive a 10-year sentence in his DC case, which will be ordered to run fully concurrently with his sentence in the Eastern District of Virginia. For the Eastern District of Virginia, he will receive approximately 15 years, which is still well below the Guidelines range of 235-293 months. Nonetheless, in light of his age, we further predict that any sentence of more than five years will be a de facto life sentence.
