Manhattan, New York – April 18, 2024 – Jury selection was further delayed in the historic criminal prosecution of former President Donald Trump in his New York criminal case, when two seated, sworn jurors were removed.

Seven jurors were sworn and selected on Wednesday, April 17, 2024, with the court and the lawyers continuing to select jurors to meet the required 12-person threshold. That number has dwindled to 5 jurors.

One juror was removed after he indicated she could not be fair and impartial after previously assuring Judge Juan Merchan that they could serve fairly and impartially. The other juror was removed after he indicated he had never been accused or convicted of a crime, and the prosecutors uncovered information contradicting the juror’s sworn responses.

Trump has pleaded not guilty to 34 felony charges of falsifying business records as part of an alleged scheme to silence two women with whom he allegedly had affairs prior to the 2016 election.

Jury selection will continue until 12 jurors plus alternate, or substitutes, are selected and sworn. The trial is scheduled to commence next week and is expected to last 6-8 weeks.

The case is the People of the State of New York v. Donald Trump, Indictment # 71543-23. It is pending in the New York County Supreme Court before the Honorable Juan Merchan.
