A New York jury convicted Donald Trump on all charges in his hush money case on Thursday barely five months ahead of the election where he seeks to recapture the White House.

The verdict makes Trump the first criminally convicted former US president but does not prevent him from campaigning for another term.

The sentencing will take place on July 11, the judge who presided over the trial said Thursday.

Judge Juan Merchan set the sentencing for 10:00 am (1400 GMT) on July 11, just days ahead of the Republican convention where Trump is expected to be named the party's presidential nominee.
