A federal judge issued a ruling on Thursday against Roger Stone, a longtime adviser to US President Donald Trump, to three years and four months in prison for convicting him on charges including lying to lawmakers who were investigating allegations of Russian interference in the 2016 presidential election.

Judge Amy Berman Jackson’s ruling came after Stone’s lawyer asked that his client not be sentenced to any prison terms in a case that sparked Trump’s anger. The judge said during the hours-long hearing of the verdict that Stone’s hostile approach and his lie posed a “threat to our democracy.”

He was not prosecuted, as some have complained, because he defended the president. He was prosecuted for covering up the president,Jackson added.

The judge said that the original prosecution memo in the case that demanded that the defendant be imprisoned for between seven and nine years, and later amended by a public complaint from Trump, was comprehensive and thorough, but said that such a ruling was “not necessary” in the Stone case.

Stone declined to make any comments during the sentencing session. Still, Stone’s request for a retrial has not yet been decided.

Judge Jackson indicated that she will not be lenient in the strict ruling guidelines that apply to those convicted of influencing witnesses and obstruction of justice, two of the seven convicted sixty in November.
