Verdict reached in Carroll v. Trump civil battery and defamation trial
SAN DIEGO (KUSI) – On Tuesday, a jury found Donald Trump liable for sexually abusing E Jean Carroll, awarding her $5 million in damages.
The judgement could haunt the former president as he makes another push for the White House.
Trump was also found liable of defamation. He was not found liable of sexual assault.
Trump, who did not attend the trail, insisted he never sexually assaulted Carroll back in 1996. He claims that he didn’t even know her.
Trump’s legal team says they plan to appeal and believe the ruling will eventually be overturned.
