Donald Trump Guilty on All 34 Counts in Hush-Money Trial

Former United States President Donald Trump has been found guilty on all 34 counts in a historic criminal trial over hush-money payments. This verdict marks the first time a former or sitting U.S. president has been convicted of a crime.

Jury's Decision

The New York City jury delivered its verdict on Thursday afternoon, concluding a seven-week trial. After hearing from nearly two dozen witnesses and deliberating for two days, the jury found Trump guilty on all charges.

Charges and Allegations

Trump faced 34 felony counts of falsifying business records. These charges were linked to a payment made to adult film star Stormy Daniels before the 2016 presidential election. Prosecutors argued that Trump concealed the payment to boost his chances of winning the election, which he eventually did.

Potential Consequences

Trump, who has maintained his innocence throughout the trial, now faces up to four years in prison for each count. However, legal experts suggest he may receive probation or community service instead of jail time.

Political Implications

This conviction could have significant implications for the upcoming 2024 presidential election. Trump, who plans to run against the current Democratic President Joe Biden, now has a criminal conviction as a new factor in his campaign.
