Lawyer: Trump will not appear in court in handcuffs

World A- A A+
Donald Trump's court hearing has been set for Tuesday afternoon, according to the BBC's US partner CBS News.
Ednews reports that the former president is expected to fly from Florida on his private plane and hand himself in with federal agents there to protect him.
A grand jury has indicted Mr Trump in connection with a $130,000 (£105,000) pay-out to porn star Stormy Daniels.
The charges are not yet public, and a lawyer for Mr Trump said on Friday that he too has yet to read the indictment.
A law enforcement official told CBS that Mr Trump is expected to fly his private plane to New York on Monday before surrendering to officials on Tuesday.
The process is likely to involve dozens or possibly hundreds of Secret Service agents, the official added, speaking on condition of anonymity.
Mr Trump will not be handcuffed, the official added, saying that shackles are typically only used on suspects who are thought to be a flight or safety risk.
