Judge Juan Merchan has delayed former President Trump’s sentencing in New York v. Trump to September, after requests from the presumptive Republican nominee to do so, and no opposition from Manhattan District Attorney Alvin Bragg.

Trump was found guilty in an unprecedented criminal trial last month on all counts of falsifying business records in the first degree, following a six-week trial stemming from Bragg’s investigation.

Trump on Monday moved to overturn his criminal conviction in the Manhattan case after the U.S. Supreme Court ruled that a former president has substantial immunity for official acts committed while in office. He also requested to delay his sentencing, which was set for July 11 — just days before the Republican National Convention where he is set to be formally nominated the 2024 GOP presidential nominee.

Bragg, on Tuesday morning, said Trump’s request to toss the verdict was without merit, but did not oppose the request to delay sentencing.

Merchan on Tuesday afternoon delayed Trump’s sentencing date to Sept. 18.
