WASHINGTON (Pakistan Point News / Sputnik - 22nd January, 2022) Former Rudy Giuliani associate Igor Fruman was sentenced to one year and one day in prison by a US judge for campaign finance violations, The Independent reported on Friday.

Fruman, who pleaded guilty in September to one count of soliciting campaign contributions from a foreign national, will have to serve one year and one day in prison beginning on March 14 and pay a $10,000 fine, the report said.

Fruman admitted to soliciting $1 million in donations from a Russian businessman to Republicans to gain their support for a recreational marijuana business.
