Trump expected to be arraigned Tuesday: lawyer

NEW YORK, March 31, 2023 (BSS/AFP) - Former US President Donald Trump is expected to be arraigned on Tuesday, his lawyer Susan Necheles told AFP, after a grand jury indicted the Republican billionaire over hush money payments made to a porn star.

"We do expect the arraignment to occur on Tuesday," Necheles said in an email, without elaborating.

At an arraignment, a defendant is presented with the charges facing them and generally enters a plea. A judge then decides whether they should be released on bail or taken into custody.
