Roger Stone apology spared jail over crosshairs on judge post


0

Longtime Trump confidant Roger Stone has been spared jail after posting a photo of gun crosshairs over a judge.

But Judge Amy Berman Jackson slapped Mr Stone with a strict gag order that bars him from public comment on his case.

Mr Stone had posted on Instagram an image of a gun sight over the judge, calling the proceedings a “show trial”.

The ex-Trump campaign adviser was arrested in January in Robert Mueller’s investigation into alleged Russian meddling in the 2016 US election.

The ruling came after Mr Stone spent the hearing apologising to the judge and asking for a second chance.

But the judge said that he was unable to “keep his story straight” in court.
