Donald Trump is found guilty of paying porn actress's silence

The tycoon was forced to remain inside the New York Court that is pursuing his case.

The twelve jurors, seven men and five women, in the criminal trial in New York against former US President Donald Trump (2017-2021) determined this Thursday that the magnate is “guilty” of charges of serious crimes of forgery of business records to protect his presidential run in 2016.

Meanwhile, the judge instructed Trump and his lawyers to remain inside the New York courtroom during deliberations.

Trump faced 34 counts of falsifying business records in the case, under charges of felony falsifying business records and violating campaign finance laws with the alleged payment of $130.000 to Stormy Daniels in exchange for his silence about his extramarital sexual relationship.

The 77-year-old Republican became the first former president in US history to be convicted in a criminal trial, as well as the first candidate from a major party to run for president being declared a criminal.

Judge Juan Merchan thanked the jury, who deliberated the case for twelve hours, for their work and attention during this month and a half that they have been away from their family and work.

The sentence will be known on July 11

The sentence against former President Donald Trump, found guilty this Thursday of 34 charges for falsifying documents to hide an adulterous relationship and not jeopardize his presidential run in 2016, will be announced on July 11.

After hearing the jury's guilty verdict, Judge Juan Merchan announced that he will read the sentence on July 11 at 10:00 local time (14:00 GMT), that is, exactly six weeks from today.

That date almost coincides with the Republican National Convention that begins on July 15 and which foresees the official proclamation of Trump as the party's candidate, as all his rivals have withdrawn.

Judge Merchan can sentence Trump to a sentence ranging from probation to four years in prison, and while no article of the Constitution prevents a convicted person from running for president, no one has yet made it very clear whether the office could be held. from a prison.

Trump rants against trial

Former US President Donald Trump, after being found guilty of all charges this Thursday in the criminal trial against him in New York, attacked the process this Thursday and described it as “rigged” and a “shame” and He considered that voters will give him a “real verdict” in the next elections.

“The trial was a rigged and a great shame. The real verdict will be given on November 5 by the people of the United States," the Republican presidential candidate declared to the press at the doors of the courtroom, with a tired and serious expression, attacking the judge as before and crying out against an alleged persecution. policy. If Trump wins the November presidential election, he would be the first president to hold office convicted of a serious crime.

With a visible lack of energy, Trump assured that he will continue “fighting” and took the opportunity to launch some of his campaign themes: “We no longer have the same country, we have the disaster of (President Joe) Biden. “We are in decline, with millions of people sneaking in from prisons and mental institutions, terrorists taking over the country.”
