If former President Donald Trump is indicted in New York, he will not be subjected to the infamous criminal walk, police sources told the Daily News.
Unlike most high-profile arrests in the city, if charges are filed against Trump and he turns himself in, he and his lawyers will be allowed to meet with Manhattan District Attorney Alvin Bragg at the downtown prosecutor’s office to take a picture of him, police sources said on Monday. .
Bragg is believed to be considering felony charges against Trump for reimbursing his former personal lawyer Michael Cohen a $130,000 hush payment to porn star Stormy Daniels shortly before the 2016 election.
Cohen testified that he paid Daniels and Playboy model Karen McDougal to keep quiet about sexual encounters they said they had with Trump in 2006. The ex-president denied the allegations.
No charges have been filed against Trump, and a grand jury will vote to indict him.
The 76-year-old former commander-in-chief sparked a storm of protest over the weekend, saying he would be arrested on Tuesday and urging supporters to protest any indictment.
“Leading Republican nominee and former President of the United States of America will be arrested on Tuesday next week,” he wrote on his Truth Social platform. “Protest, take back our nation!”
As a result, Mayor Adams and Police Commissioner Keechant Sewell outline precautions before a decision is made.
