Trump’s hush money case has gone to the jury. What happens now?

Associated Press

NEW YORK (AP) — After nearly two dozen witnesses, 16 days of testimony and hours of lawyers’ closing arguments, it’s time for jurors to have their say in former President Donald Trump’s hush money trial. Jury deliberations began Wednesday in the first criminal trial of a former U.S. president. Jurors will return Thursday morning for a second day of discussion behind closed doors in a room reserved for them. The deliberations are secret, though jurors can communicate a bit by having a court officer deliver notes from them to the judge. The seven-man, five-woman, anonymous jury is tasked with deciding whether Trump is guilty of 34 felony counts of falsifying his company’s records. The presumptive Republican nominee has pleaded not guilty.
