The Trump Organization, the family real estate firm of former US President Donald Trump, has been found guilty of fraud in New York, New York's attorney general announced on Tuesday.

The jury made its decision after more than a month of hearings.

Two companies in Trump’s empire, Trump Corporation and Trump Payroll Corporation, were found guilty on all 17 charges.

The former president was not personally charged in this case.

However, the company’s former chief financial officer, Allen Weisselberg, did stand trial. He confessed to years of systematic tax evasion.

Sentencing will be done on 13 January.
