Key Points

A New York federal jury found former President Donald Trump liable for sexually abusing E. Jean Carroll in a Manhattan department store in the 1990s.

Trump was also found liable for defaming the writer last fall when he accused Carroll of making up that account.

The jury, which did not find that Trump had raped Carroll, ordered him to pay her $5 million in compensatory and punitive damages.

The frontrunner for the 2024 Republican presidential nomination faces multiple criminal investigations.
