D.C.-based consultant Sam Patten was sentenced to three years probation on Friday for failing to register as lobbyist for a Ukrainian political party.

Patten, a former associate of former Trump campaign chairman Paul Manafort who pleaded guilty last August and cooperated in special counsel Robert Mueller’s investigation as well as other criminal probes, was also ordered to pay a $5,000 fine and perform 500 hours of community service.

Judge Amy Berman Jackson handed down Patten’s sentence in federal court in Washington, D.C., describing his offense as serious but suggesting his acceptance of responsibility and substantial cooperation with government prosecutors were strong mitigating factors.
