Peter StrZok and Paul Fonda, the two lawyers representing former FBI agent Peter Strzhok, have just had a client testify under oath in a corruption case against them.
According to the Washington Post, the lawyers have been granted immunity from prosecution, so it’s possible the pair won’t face criminal charges in the future.
The Post also reports that the pair has agreed to pay $1.25 million in a civil settlement.
The two lawyers have repeatedly said they were innocent until proven guilty in the Strzoks case, which involves their role in the leak of information about a sex tape.
Strzoski and Fonda allegedly used their positions as FBI agents to facilitate the leaking of the confidential information.
Strzoski is the chief of the criminal investigation division of the Justice Department’s Office of the Inspector General.
Strzok was sentenced to two years in prison in 2016 for leaking a sexual-tape recording to a news outlet.
