The two US citizens pleaded guilty and apologized for their role in Ghosn’s escape.
Last year, US authorities arrested the duo after Japan requested their extradition for helping Ghosn avoid allegations of financial misconduct they faced in Japan.
In November 2019, Ghosn was arrested for corruption while he was president of Nissan in Japan. Later, in December 2019, Ghosn managed to escape to Lebanon.
