The 53-year-old was sentenced to three years for a series of crimes, including covering up payments to porn star Stormy Daniels and former Playboy model Karen McDougal.
Cohen was released on May 20 for the coronavirus, even after a judge refused to reduce his sentence two months earlier.

“Ten months after his imprisonment, it is time for Cohen to accept the consequences of his criminal convictions for serious crimes that suffered far-reaching institutional damage,” said Manhattan federal judge William Pauley.
His sentence will expire on November 22, 2021, according to the BOP website.
Cohrey attorney Jeffrey K Levine defended his client’s outing, saying Cohen is “on leave right now.”
Levine added that his client “did not violate any of the terms of his release … and any statement or suggestion to the contrary would be utterly inaccurate and untrue.”
