Verdict reached by jury in Trump hush money trial

The jury in New York has reached a verdict in the hush money case of former President Donald Trump.

After two days of deliberations, the historic trial of a former president reaches its climax with the delivery of the verdict.

Donald Trump, aged 77, is currently facing 34 charges of falsifying business records. According to the laws of New York state, the offense of falsifying business records in the first degree is considered a Class E felony, which carries a maximum prison sentence of four years.

The case revolved around an alleged sexual encounter between Trump and an adult film actress in 2006. In 2016, a $130,000 payment was made to the actress to maintain her silence before the 2016 election. Trump has consistently denied the encounter and pleaded not guilty.
