I’m no fan of Manafort, and I’ve dunked on him a lot, but the moment of finding out just how long of a long sentence you’ll get is awful, especially for the defendant but also for lawyers, friends, and family. I’ve stood there as the lawyer and it’s excruciating./1
/2 It wouldn’t be bad to attempt some empathy for the people facing it — not minimize or excuse their crimes, but recognize their humanity remaining in their brokenness.
