A federal judge in Virginia set Paul Manafort's first sentencing date.
The former campaign chairman for President Donald Trump will be sentenced Feb. 8 on eight counts of bank and tax fraud crimes. The judge dismissed 10 additional counts the jury couldn't reach a verdict on, but prosecutors could re-file those charges later.
That cooperation could prompt prosecutors to ask for a shorter sentence. But legal experts expect Manafort will spend at least 10 years in prison.
