Key Mueller witness gets 10 years in prison on child sex trafficking charges
Key Mueller witness gets 10 years in prison 
on child sex trafficking charges

A key witness in special counsel Robert Mueller's 
Russia-Trump campaign collusion probe, on Friday 
received a 10-year prison sentence on child sex charges. 

The witness, George Nader, who also acted as an 
adviser for President Trump's White House transition 
team following the 2016 election, was handed the 
sentence by Judge Leonie Brinkema at the 
U.S. District Court for the Eastern District of Virginia.

Nader, who has already served a year in prison, 
admitted to bringing a 14-year-old boy from the 
Czech Republic to the United States in 2000 for 
sex trafficking. As part of the sentence, he is also 
ordered to pay that victim $150,000. 

His lawyers, who lobbied for the 10-year term rather 
than a longer stay in prison, expressed "a real fear 
that [Nader] will not outlive the sentence" due to 
health problems as well as the ongoing 
coronavirus pandemic. 

Nader in court said he was "dearly, deeply sorry" for the crimes.

Freely Advises,
Justly Assists Readily,
Adventures Boldly,
Takes all Patiently,
Defends Courageously
Continues a Friend Unchangeably.
