Attorneys for former National Security Advisor Michael Flynn have requested that he only serve 200 hours of community service after lying to the Federal Bureau of Investigations.
In the “government’s memorandum in aid of sentencing,” Special Counsel Robert Mueller said, “given the defendant’s substantial assistance and other considerations set forth below, a sentence at the low end of the guideline range — including a sentence that does not impose a term of incarceration — is appropriate and warranted.”
Tonight’s Flynn’s lawyer’s replied.
The defense requested the judge, “sentence him to a term of probation not to exceed one year, with minimal conditions of supervision, along with 200 hours of community service.”
“General Flynn has accepted responsibility for his conduct,” the defense argued. “He has cooperated extensively with several Department of Justice investigations.”
“As the government has made clear, his cooperation was not grudging or delayed,” the defense added.
