Michael Cohen, a former personal lawyer to President Trump, was released from federal prison to home confinement Thursday as part of the Justice Department’s push to stem the spread of the coronavirus among inmates, his attorney said.

Jeffrey Levine said he had spoken with Cohen about 9 a.m. The lawyer said he probably would issue a statement later in the day, after speaking further with Cohen.

The article goes on to state the following:

Cohen pleaded guilty in 2018 in two separate criminal cases. In the first, he admitted to campaign finance violations stemming from payments made before the 2016 election to women who alleged having affairs with Trump years earlier. The president has denied their claims. In the second, Cohen admitted to lying to Congress about a Moscow real estate project Trump and his company pursued while Trump was trying to secure the Republican presidential nomination.

Cohen was sentenced to three years in prison, and has been incarcerated since May 6, 2019. He is now reportedly expected to serve the remainder of his time in home confinement.

NBC News posted a video of the moment Cohen stepped out of a car and returned to his upscale New York City apartment located on Trump Park Avenue. WATCH:
