Russian national Maria Butina who famously made inroads into the National Rifle Association and the GOP, was sentenced to 9 more months in prison on top of the similar time already served for acting as an unregistered foreign agent. Prosecutors wanted an additional 18 months. She will be deported upon serving the remainder of her sentence.
Butina pleaded with the judge prior to the sentencing for leniency reported RT, “My parents discovered my arrest on the morning news they watch in their rural house in a Siberian village,” she told the court. “I love them dearly, but I harmed them morally and financially. They are suffering from all of that. I destroyed my own life as well. I came to the United States not under any orders, but with hope, and now nothing remains but penitence.”
