Manafort's former son-in-law sentenced for multiple scamsPaul Manafort's former son-in-law has been sentenced in Los Angeles to nine years in prison for pulling a series of schemes totaling more than $ 13 million, including one that bilked $ 3 million from actor Dustin Hoffman. U.S. District Judge Andre Birotte Jr. ordered Jeffrey Yohai to pay $ 6.7 million in restitution on Friday for the schemes, some of which were carried out while he was released on bond for similar crimes. Prosecutors said Yohai persuaded Hoffman and his son Jacob to invest in a real estate project, but he used their money for personal expenses and to pay debts.
