Trump Liable In Civil Rape Trial

(New York, NY) — Former President Trump has been found liable for sexually abusing and defaming E. Jean Carroll in his New York City civil trial. The writer said Trump raped her in a Manhattan department store dressing room in the 1990s and then defamed her years later by denying it. The jury said Trump was not liable for rape, but was liable for sexual abuse and defamation. Trump denied all of the allegations against him. Because it’s a civil case, Trump does not face jail, but he has been ordered to pay her five-million dollars. The jury took only three hours to deliberate.
