WASHINGTON (CNN) -- Roger Stone will be sentenced Thursday in Washington.

A jury found the political strategist guilty last week of lying to congress and threatening a witness on his efforts for Donald Trump's 2016 campaign.

The Stone case was the last set of criminal charges filed before the end of the investigation by special prosecutor Robert Mueller.

The case prompted President Trump to tweet his support for Stone.

Stone has asked for probation. But the Justice Department has advocated prison time.

The judge may address how the four prosecutors who took Stone's case to trial quit last week after Justice Department leadership softened its stance toward Stone.

The judge has already determined if he's sentenced to prison, Stone will not be detained immediately. That's because he's still challenging his conviction, claiming juror misconduct.

The judge is separately still considering that request for a new trial.
