Former Trump adviser Roger Stone was sentenced Thursday to 40 months by U.S. District Judge Amy Berman Jackson, who has been involved in several high-profile cases since being appointed to the federal bench in 2011 by former President Barack Obama.

JUDGE TO MOVE FORWARD WITH ROGER STONE SENTENCING AMID CONTROVERSY

She has been described by some as tough, fair and always prepared.

Here are more details about cases over which Judge Jackson has presided.

Roger Stone case

Jackson is presiding over the Roger Stone case, in which a jury found him guilty on all seven counts of obstruction, witness tampering and making false statements to Congress in connection with former Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s Russia investigation.

Stone was charged with providing false statements to the House Intelligence Committee about communication involving WikiLeaks, obstructing a congressional investigation of Russian interference during the 2016 U.S. presidential election and witness tampering.

During the trial, Jackson barred Stone from speaking publically about the ongoing prosecution after a picture of her appeared on his Instagram with what appeared to be crosshairs on the background.

Stone blamed the decision — which he reviewed — on an unnamed volunteer and apologized, to which Jackson replied last February, “I have serious doubts about whether you learned anything at all.”
