"I made a terrible mistake, but I am a good man who is eager for redemption", Papadopoulos said.
The professor told Papadopoulos the Russians had "dirt" on Mr Trump's Democratic presidential rival Hillary Clinton in the form of "thousands of emails".
Far from cooperating to energize the special counsel probe, prosecutors Jeannie Rhee, Andrew Goldstein and Aaron Zelinsky argued, Papadopoulos and his wife gave life to a false narrative about them and the seriousness of his offense.
Papadopolous will also have 12 months of supervised release, serve 200 hours of community service within about a year and will be fined $9,500.
Colin Kaepernick Nike Ad Will Air During NFL Opening Game
Nike's stock price fell by almost 4% when Kaepernick first revealed he was fronting the campaign on social media. At the end of the commercial, Kaepernick turns to the camera and says, "So don't ask if your dreams are insane ".
US District Judge Randolph Moss said he "lied in an investigation that was important to national security".
"This was not a noble lie", Moss said.
As noted by USA Today, authorities thought that Papadopoulos could serve as a key informant, but it quickly became clear that was not the case.
Trump said earlier Friday that he did not know Papadopoulos.
"The president of the United States hindered this investigation more than George Papadopoulos ever could", Breen said.
Prosecutors had asked for six months.
Russia Launches Airstrikes in Syria's Rebel-Held Idlib

Richard Pinedo, who was not involved with the Trump campaign, pleaded guilty in a case related to the Mueller probe in February to aiding and abetting interstate and foreign identity fraud by creating, buying and stealing hundreds of bank account numbers that he sold to individuals to use with large digital payment companies.
The sentencing, coming almost one year after he pleaded guilty to lying to federal agents, ends an important yet mysterious story line in the examination of whether anyone from Trump's team conspired with Moscow to influence the presidential election. Pinedo "made a mistake" but "had absolutely no knowledge" about who was buying the information or their motivations, his lawyer said.
"I saw him sitting in one picture at a table with me, that's the only thing I know about him", Trump said, referring to a widely circulated photo of Papadopoulos in a meeting with Trump and several other advisers.
Papadopoulos, who served as a foreign policy adviser to President Donald Trump's campaign, has been a central figure in the Russian Federation investigation dating back before Mueller's May 2017 appointment. In court papers, Breen wrote that during a March 2016 meeting attended by Papadopoulos, Trump nodded with approval at the idea, and then-Senator Jeff Sessions "appeared to like" it and said the campaign "should look into it".
US President Donald Trump reacted by taking an apparent swipe at the cost of the investigation into the former aide.
Papadopoulos also made a similar claim about Sessions last week in court.
