President Donald Trump’s longtime personal lawyer and fixer Michael Cohen was freed from federal prison just before 9am Thursday to serve the remainder of his sentence at home.

Cohen had been serving a federal prison sentence at FCI Otisville in New York after pleading guilty to numerous charges, including campaign finance fraud and lying to Congress.

He was seen leaving the low-security prison in a silver Mercedes A-class sedan driven by his son Jake. He was not wearing a mask and was wearing a crisp white shirt with French cuffs and no tie.

Cohen’s son, Jake Ross Cohen, picked up his father from prison and was seen helping to carry his father’s personal items into their apartment

Later Cohen was seen arriving at his Manhattan apartment, wearing a University of Miami cap and a mask. His personal items, including a box, clearly marked ‘Legal Documents’, were brought in a luggage cart and carried in by his son Jake.

The onetime-fixer was released on furlough with the expectation that he will transition to home confinement to serve the remainder of his sentence at home. 

Cohen, 53, began serving his sentence last May and was scheduled to be released from prison in November 2021.

He had pleaded guilty to a series of offenses, including breaking campaign finance law by paying ‘hush money’ to Stormy Daniels to keep her alleged affair with Donald Trump secret.
