Noting that they do not believe a prison sentence will be imposed on July 11, they also spoke about the sentence that awaits the former president.

“I think it’s highly unlikely that he will be sent to prison,” said former U.S. Attorney Frederick D. Davis said.

“An average person who’s not a former president or a presidential candidate, a person with a clean criminal record, a convicted fraudster, is generally not going to be sent to prison,” explains lawyer and former assistant attorney general in New York, Stephen L. Dreyfus.
