Donald Trump is officially the first former or current president of the United States to face criminal charges in the history of the United States of America. Each of the felony charges carries a maximum sentence of four years in prison.

But Juan Mercan, the judge overseeing the case, is not expected to approve such a long sentence. Many legal observers believe the sentence will not exceed four years, but Trump could also avoid prison altogether and instead receive probation or community service.

Merchan will weigh several factors in making his decision, including the unique nature of the case, Trump's age and the logistics of keeping a former president safe while in prison.

"It was a rigged trial by the Biden administration," says former President Trump

After blaming the Biden administration, Donald Trump blamed the judge and the prosecutor for the rigged trial. He continued to talk about issues such as the polarization and division of the country and immigration in an attempt to change the conversation. He didn't fail to blame his Manhattan ratings for the conviction.

"We're going to keep fighting, we're going to fight to the end and we're going to win because our country has gone to hell," Trump said, adding that "we don't have the same country anymore, we have a divided mess."

The decision on his sentence will not take place before July 11. Prosecutors had rested much of their case on Cohen, Trump's former lawyer. Cohen told the court in mid-May that he lied and intimidated several witnesses on behalf of his former boss. She also testified that Trump was furious that Daniels, a porn star, was selling a story about the sexual intercourse she says she had with the former president.

"He told me that this is a disaster, a total disaster. Women are going to hate me,” Cohen told jurors. "Men, they think it's cool, but it's going to be a campaign disaster."

It is typical that the jurors confirmed their decision one by one looking straight ahead and with President Trump's head bowed.
