As Twitchy reported in January, author and filmmaker Dinesh D’Souza was indicted on one count of making illegal campaign contributions in the names of others, and one count of causing false statements to be made.

Today, D’Souza received his punishment. The good news: D’Souza will serve no prison time.

Reuters reports:

Conservative author and filmmaker Dinesh D’Souza was sentenced on Tuesday to spend eight months in a community confinement center during five years of probation after pleading guilty to a campaign finance law violation.

The defendant, a frequent critic of President Barack Obama, was sentenced by U.S. District Judge Richard Berman in Manhattan. He was also given a $30,000 fine and ordered to do one day of community service a week during his probation.
