Former President Donald Trump became the first U.S. President to be convicted of a crime. He has been found guilty on all 34 felony counts by a jury of his peers in a New York criminal case regarding hush money payments he made to Stormy Daniels in an attempt to influence the 2016 election.

But the conclusion of this high-profile hush money trial isn’t over. The verdict marks just the beginning of a protracted legal battle. The road ahead includes sentencing, potential prison time, and a prolonged appellate process.

Amidst all of this, Trump faces three more criminal cases and an ongoing presidential campaign with aspirations of reclaiming the White House. As the nation grapples with the verdict, uncertainties loom over the sentencing slated for July 11, just days before Trump’s potential nomination as a 2024 Republican presidential candidate.
