Jury finds Trump liable for sexual abuse, awards accuser $5M
NEW YORK (AP) — A jury has found Donald Trump liable for sexually abusing advice columnist E. Jean Carroll in 1996. Jurors awarded 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 deliberations.

Trump chose not to attend the civil trial and was absent when the verdict was read.
