Donald Trump

Former US President Donald Trump on Thursday 30th May was found guilty of 34 counts of felony crimes by a New York jury.

In the Manhattan courtroom where Trump has been on trial since April 15, the verdict was read. In the last weeks of the 2016 presidential election, he entered a not-guilty plea to 34 charges of falsifying business documents pertaining to a hush money payment made to adult film star Stormy Daniels by his former attorney, Michael Cohen.

As the first former US president to be found guilty of a crime, Trump could be sentenced to prison or probation for his offences related to a hush money payment scheme he helped set up before the 2016 presidential election.

As he contemplates a presidential re-election, voters will have to determine how they interpret his acts.

Trump, who has a history of filing extensive appeals of court decisions against him, is also likely to challenge the conviction, which could cause his July 11 sentence to be postponed considerably.

Trump’s sentence has been scheduled for July 11 at 10 a.m. ET by Judge Juan Merchan.

The former president will not go behind bars for the time being while he awaits sentencing. Trump was not required to post a bond by the prosecution.

This was a scandal. Following the trial, Trump angrily told reporters, “This was a rigged trial by a conflicted and corrupt judge.”

With his eyes squinted, Trump watched as the jury foreperson read “guilty” to each count. After a trial that lasted for several weeks, the judge expressed gratitude to the jury.

Judge Juan Merchan addressed them, saying, “I want to thank you for giving this matter the attention it deserves.” As the jurors left the courtroom, Trump seemed as though he was scowling at them.
