Even if its quantity is less or more. In New York, both sexual abuse ie sexual indecency, and rape are considered cases related to sexual crimes.
What was there to prove
Carroll’s lawyers had to prove whether Trump coerced him and what is the evidence in this. The jury found that Trump committed sexual misconduct and was entitled to damages for the assault, although the jury did not find that Carroll was raped.
Also, whatever maximum evidence they have, they say that whatever Trump publicly claimed last year about Carroll was wrong and false, and Trump deliberately defamed him by doing so.
How long did Carroll testify
This lawsuit was filed in November. After this, Carroll’s hearing was held for two whole days. The argument took place. He narrated the past incident with him. He told me how his life has changed since then. During cross-examination, Trump’s lawyer cross-examined him for hours.
Carroll introduced his friends only whom he had told about it after the accident. Trump’s lawyer did a lot of questioning and cross-examination with both of them. However, Trump’s legal team alleged that all three were lying.
However, not only Carol, but many women have accused Trump of sexually abusing them from time to time in a similar manner.

Will it affect Trump’s election campaign?
