Manafort appears in court in wheelchair, to be sentenced in February

( CNN) Former Trump campaign chairwoman Paul Manafort appeared in a wheelchair in a Virginia courtroom Friday afternoon, where he learned he will be sentenced next February even while his cooperation with special attorney Robert Mueller’s investigation continues.

Manafort, who was convicted on eight counts in August, appeared in court in a wheelchair, with his right foot raised off the ground and in a sock. He is experiencing a serious medical condition — inflammation that’s related to his diet, a person familiar with Manafort’s condition said.

In addition to setting the sentencing date for February 8, Ellis will dismiss 10 charges on which the jury could not reach a verdict during the August trial.
