NEW YORK (AP) — The numbers guy did the math: Allen Weisselberg — a longtime lieutenant loyal to Donald Trump — could have faced years in prison if he stood trial and failed to defeat the allegations of tax evasion. But if he agreed to testify in an upcoming trial of the former president’s company, he would likely serve no more than 100 days.

Weisselberg, 75, agreed to the deal on Thursday, pleading guilty to 15 counts, including tax evasion and theft.
