Jury Finds Trump Liable for Sexual Abuse, Awards E. Jean Carroll $5 Million

From an AP story by Larry Neumeister headlind “Jury finds Trump liable for sexual abuse, awards accuser $5M”:

A jury found Donald Trump liable Tuesday for sexually abusing advice columnist E. Jean Carroll in 1996, awarding her $5 million in a judgment that could haunt the former president as he campaigns to regain the White House.

The verdict was announced in a federal courtroom in New York City on the first day of jury deliberations. Jurors rejected Carroll’s claims that she was raped, but found Trump liable for sexual abuse and for defaming Carroll after she made her allegations public.
