Cohen heads to prison for hush payments

ROUGH CUT (NO REPORTER NARRATION) Michael Cohen, the lawyer who once vowed to "take a bullet" for President Donald Trump but now calls him a "con man," on Monday left his Manhatten apartment to begin serving a three-year prison sentence for arranging hush payments to two women who said they had sexual encounters with the president and lying to the U.S. Congress.

Cohen, Trump's longtime former personal attorney, is reporting to the Federal Correctional Institution in Otisville, New York, about 70 miles (110 km) northwest of New York City.

He is expected to stay at the prison's minimum security camp.

Cohen's prison term completes a stunning fall for the 52-year-old native of New York's Long Island whose career was tethered to Trump as he evolved from wealthy real estate developer to reality TV personality to politician.

For more than a decade, Cohen served as Trump's personal lawyer and self-described "fixer." The relationship began to sour after FBI agents raided Cohen's Rockefeller Center office and Park Avenue hotel room in April 2018 as part of an investigation that grew out of Special Counsel Robert Mueller's investigation into Russian interference in the 2016 U.S. election.

The information gathered in the raids contributed to a series of criminal charges against Cohen that caused his dramatic split with Trump.

Cohen publicly broke with Trump in July 2018, telling ABC News he intended to put family and loyalty to his country ahead of the president.

Cohen and his wife, Laura Shusterman, 49, have two adult children, Samantha and Jake.
