Former son-in-law of Trump's infamous Trump campaign chairman Paul Manafort was sentenced to nine years in prison on Friday after pleading guilty to a series of fraudulent schemes, including one that defrauded actor Dustin Hoffman of $ 3 million.  Jeffrey Yohai, 37, who divorced Manafort's daughter Jessica in 2017, was also sentenced to pay $ 6.7 million in restitution in a federal court in Los Angeles.
"This is a person who has a wicked mind – I do not know how to say it otherwise," Judge Andre Birote Jr. said. "He seems to feel he can do whatever he wants – but that dollar stops here."
Yohai pleaded guilty to conspiracy to commit bank fraud and fraud for schemes involving the rental of luxury homes without the permission of their owners and selling non-existent backstage passes for the Coachella Music Festival.

Prosecutors Say Yohai Persuaded Hofman properties, but used their $ 3 million investment in personal expenses and debt repayments.
"The defendant caused enormous damage to a large number of victims," writes Assistant U.S. Attorney Andrew Brown in a lawsuit, adding that Yohai "showed an almost unbelievable compulsion to deceive others, to the extent that he could not stop even until he was waiting for this court's decision on it in the first case, which strongly suggested that he would continue on his criminal path, although he was blessed with so many advantages. "
" Even worse, he enjoys cheating and enjoying cheating others out of their hard-earned money, as if he thinks the real deal is just for the duck, "Brown adds.

Jessica Manafort is present at the sentencing according to reports.
Last year, Paul Manafort pleaded guilty in DC to a foreign court for violations of foreign lobbying and witness tampering as part of a plea. deal with prosecutors. He was also sentenced in Virginia to commit bank and tax fraud by concealing millions of dollars in income earned in Ukraine by the IRS.
Manafort was sentenced to 47 months in prison last March in the Virginia case and received 73 months in prison in the DC case.

Prosecutors with Special Attorney Robert Mueller argued at the March verdict that Manafort did not deserve any credit for agreeing to investigate Russia, as it has repeatedly lied to investigators before a major hearing after pleading guilty.
