Released from prison: Allen Weisselberg, former CFO of the Trump Organization

Former Trump Organization chief financial officer Allen Weisselberg was released from jail on Wednesday, according to NYC Department of Correction records.

According to New York City Department of Corrections records, the former Trump Organization Chief Financial Officer Allen Weisselberg has been released from prison on Wednesday.

Weisselberg, a former employee of Donald Trump’s business family, was sentenced to New York’s Rikers island prison on January 10, for his role in a large-scale 15 year tax fraud scheme.

The sentence was five months in prison, but he was eligible to be released after 100 days for good behavior.

Weisselberg pleaded guilty to the long-running scam last year. He and other executives were given bonuses and benefits in a way that defrauded tax authorities and saved money for the company. He avoided taxes on income of $1.76million.

Weisselberg, as part of his plea agreement, testified in the trial last year of the Trump Organization. The Trump Organization was also charged with tax fraud scheme. The company was fined the maximum amount of $1.6 million for its guilt.

Weisselberg’s lawyer did not respond immediately to a comment request.
