Breaking: Trump Sentencing Will Likely Be Delayed as Judge Weighs Supreme Court Immunity Decision

President Donald Trump’s criminal sentencing for falsifying business records, originally scheduled for July 11, will likely be delayed for at least two weeks as the judge in the case weighs whether a recent Supreme Court decision clarifying the scope of presidential immunity will impact his conviction.

Manhattan prosecutors revealed in court filings on Tuesday that they will not oppose Trump’s motion to postpone his criminal sentencing, which Trump filed just after the Supreme Court ruled that presidents have immunity from criminal prosecution for acts that fall within their “core constitutional powers.”

Manhattan district attorney Alvin Bragg's office said that while “we believe defendant's arguments to be without merit, we do not oppose his request” to delay Trump’s sentencing around two weeks past the original sentencing date of July 11. The delay means that Trump likely won’t be sentenced until after he is officially nominated at the Republican National Convention, which begins July 15.

Trump’s attorney requested on Monday that Judge Juan M. Merchan weigh in on the 6-3 Supreme Court decision granting Trump immunity from being prosecuted for actions taken as part of his official duties as president, and consider how it could affect his recent conviction in New York.
