Butina Cooperating With Investigators, Sentencing Delayed


Alleged Russian operative Maria Butina will stay in jail for at least another month, as she continues to help prosecutors with other cases following her guilty plea in December.

In a court hearing Tuesday afternoon, prosecutors say she may be able to be sentenced at the end of March, CNN reports

As KELOLAND News investigates has reported, Butina is expected to be helping investigators pursue cases against her boyfriend South Dakota Republican political operative Paul Erickson. 

He plead not guilty to money laundering in South Dakota recently, and was also under investigation by DC federal prosecutors, who have not brought charges.
