The sentencing of former President Donald Trump has been postponed by prosecutors in Manhattan District Attorney Alvin Bragg’s office, as reported by The New York Times. This decision comes after Trump was convicted on May 30 of 34 felony counts of falsification of business records by a Manhattan jury. The delay was granted in response to a recent Supreme Court ruling that grants presidents immunity from prosecution for “official acts” carried out while in office. However, the prosecutors deemed the motion filed by Trump’s attorneys as lacking merit, according to the NYT.

“Although we believe defendant’s arguments to be without merit, we do not oppose his request for leave to file and his putative request to adjourn sentencing pending determination of his motion,” Joshua Steinglass, an assistant district attorney, wrote in response, according to the NYT.

Trump’s legal team sent a letter to Judge Juan Merchan of New York following the decision of the Supreme Court, requesting approval to submit a motion to overturn the verdict, as reported by the New York Times. The sentencing was planned for July 11, just four days before the commencement of the Republican National Convention in Milwaukee, Wisconsin.

According to the NYT, Trump’s lawyer suggested submitting their legal papers on July 10, and Bragg’s team indicated that they would reply two weeks later. Merchan has not yet approved the new timetable.
