(NEW YORK, NY) — Lobbyist Paul Manafort, was sentenced to 47 months in prison after being convicted for financial fraud. According to CNN, he was convicted last summer for defrauding banks and the government, and for failing to pay taxes on millions of dollars in income. These convictions have led to the seizing of five of Manafort’s properties, as reported by Forbes. After a plea deal with the U.S Marshals, they have listed the first property owned by Manafort, listing at $3.66 million. Located on 29 Howard Street, this 2,060 square foot condo, sits on the fourth floor and comes with a two-bedroom, two-bath layout. It has also been recently renovated including an open floor plan, fireplace, new floors, central A/C, new kitchen, and an in-unit washer and dryer.
