The writer accused Trump of having raped her in the changing room of a department store in NY in the mid-nineties, and also to defame her when she decided to make her complaint public in a book that she published in 2019.

Initially, he denounced the former president for defamation, but last year he took advantage of a legal window that was opened in New York to seek civil justice for prescribed sexual crimes, also accusing him of rape.

Carroll testified in the case and told her story in the first person, submitting to cross-examination by Trump’s attorney, Joe Tacopinawho tried to discredit her and questioned, among other things, that she had not screamed during the alleged sexual assault.

The jury began deliberating this morning after two weeks of trial and took less than three hours to reach a unanimous verdict, finding Trump responsible for “sexual abuse” -but not rape- and defamation against Carroll.

As it is a civil and not criminal trial, the former president did not risk a prison sentence, but he will have to pay the complainant compensation, established by the jury at 5 million dollars.
