Calif. man ensnared in Mueller probe sentenced to 6 months in prison

A California man ensnared in special counsel Robert Mueller’s investigation into Russia's election interference was sentenced on Wednesday to six months in prison, six months of home detention and two years of supervised release.

Richard Pinedo pleaded guilty to one count of identity fraud seven months ago and cooperated with government investigators in the case against the Internet Research Agency, the Russian troll farm accused of interfering in the 2016 presidential election.

Pinedo’s sentencing, which ties up another lose end in Mueller’s sprawling probe, comes not long after the sentencing of former Trump campaign adviser George Papadopoulos to 14 days in prison for lying to FBI agents investigating Russia’s efforts.

Pinedo is a rather minor player in an investigation that spans several fronts and has embroiled major figures of President Trump’s 2016 campaign, as Mueller explores potential collusion between the campaign and Moscow.
