Here’s How Long Donald Trump Could Spend in Prison If Found Guilty on All 34 Felony Counts

Published on

If convicted on all charges brought against him by Manhattan District Attorney Alvin Bragg, former President Donald Trump may face up to 136 years in jail.

This is if Trump receives the maximum penalty of four years for each of the claimed 34 instances of falsifying company documents he faces.

Michael Isikoff of Yahoo News stated Bragg’s office indicated Trump on roughly three dozen Class E crimes related to alleged “hush money” payments to former adult film star Stormy Daniels weeks before the 2016 presidential election.

Trump has disputed Daniels’ claims that the two had an affair in 2006. Daniels claims the affair occurred in 2006.

The Justice Department examined the $130,000 payment to Daniels and concluded its own investigation in 2019 without pressing charges.

Isikoff stated that none of the state accusations brought against Trump are misdemeanors, despite the fact that they could have been.

“The charge of falsification of business records can be prosecuted in New York state as a misdemeanor,” Isikoff noted. “But Bragg’s office bumped up all the charges to Class E felonies — the lowest level of felonies in the New York state penal code — on the grounds that the conduct was intended to conceal another underlying crime, according to the source.”

Isikoff said that it seemed “unlikely” that Trump would get such a term if convicted of a felony as the country’s 45th president.

“Under the New York State penal code, a conviction for the Class E felony of falsifying business records can result in a prison term of up to four years,” the reporter noted. “But as a practical matter, that seems extremely unlikely.”

A state law enforcement officer stated to Isikoff, “No one gets jail time for that as a first offender.”

Trump was arraigned in Manhattan on Tuesday afternoon on the accusations brought against him by Bragg’s office, after the referral of a New York grand jury, after he surrendered on Monday.

Throughout his campaign, Bragg claimed he would pursue Trump if elected as district attorney.

Trump said on Truth Social Tuesday that it was “surreal” as he headed to the courthouse to be arrested.

“Heading to Lower Manhattan, the Courthouse,” Trump wrote. “Seems so SURREAL — WOW, they are going to ARREST ME. Can’t believe this is happening in America. MAGA!”

Trump was expected to submit his fingerprints and be photographed on Tuesday. He did not anticipate being handcuffed.

The judge handling Trump’s case previously presided over a tax fraud case involving the Trump Organization and its former chief financial officer, Allen Weisselberg.

Judge Juan Merchan will also rule over the impending lawsuit involving former top strategist of the Trump White House, Steve Bannon.
