A sickly Paul Manafort was sentenced to another 3.5 years in prison Wednesday.

U.S. District Judge Judge Amy Berman Jackson of D.C. sentenced him to 43 months, which is in addition to the 47 months he received by a federal judge in Alexandria, Va. in a separate case, the Washington Post reports. 

“This defendant is not public enemy number one, but he’s also not a victim either,” Jackson said. “There’s no question this defendant knew better, and he knew exactly what he was doing.”

There’s no indication to date whether President Donald Trump will pardon him. Trump has expressed sympathy for Manafort.

Thirty-three well-heeled parents, including Hollywood celebrities including Lori Loughlin and Felicity Huffman, were implicated Tuesday in a nationwide bribery and fraud scheme to help students gain admission to elite colleges and universities, the New York Times reports. 

College athletic coaches were also implicated for allegedly taking bribes to help students gain admissions to schools like Yale and Stanford.
