Judge in Trump hush money case to consider jailing Trump

NEW YORK (Reuters) - The judge in the criminal hush money trial of Donald Trump said on Monday that he will consider jail time for the former president for additional violations of the gag order after finding that $1,000 fines are not working as a deterrent.

Justice Juan Merchan Merchan, who has already imposed $9,000 in fines on Trump, said during the hearing that he will find Trump in contempt of court for the 10th time.
