New York jury finds Trump guilty on all counts

(Al Jazeera Media Network) A New York jury has found Donald Trump guilty in a hush-money case, making him the first former US president to be convicted of a crime.

Trump has been convicted on all 34 felony counts of falsifying business records in relation to a hush money payment made to adult film star Stormy Daniels.

The judge overseeing the case, Juan Merchan, is expected to announce his sentencing decision on July 11.

Trump faces a maximum sentence of four years for each felony, but experts say it is unlikely he will get jail time; instead, he could receive probation or community service.
