Since the original plea was entered last February, the actual conviction and sentencing that occurred this week has been largely overlooked. Now this third tier scumbag isn’t actually related to the Trump campaign, but he helped enable Russian interference in the 2016 US presidential election: Richard Pinedo becomes third person sentenced in Robert Mueller’s Russia probe

A federal judge in Washington, D.C., sentenced Richard Pinedo on Wednesday to six months in prison followed by six months in home detention for his role in Russian meddling in the 2016 election. Pinedo, whose website sold Americans’ bank information online, pleaded guilty in February to one count of identity fraud. Although he is not as well known as other individuals charged by special counsel Robert Mueller, Pinedo is the third person to be sentenced in connection to the investigation.

After his initial sentence, he will serve two years of supervised release. Judge Dabney Friedrich decided not to impose a fine because he determined Pinedo would not be able to pay it. He will undergo location monitoring for six months and computer monitoring, which will be determined by the probation office. Pinedo will voluntarily surrender to the Bureau of Prisons back home in the central district of California.
