The lawyer for a woman who claims Donald Trump raped her when she was 13 years old has said the Republican presidential candidate will have to answer the charges in court.
Cheney Mason is representing “Jane Doe” in court papers over accusations Mr Trump attacked her at a party in New York in 1994.
Mr Mason told Buzzfeed News: “This case, based on the sworn declarations of the victim and two corroborating witnesses, will be tried in court, where the defendants will be required to answer questions under oath and pursuant to the rules of evidence.”
The alleged victim claims the businessman raped her during a party at the New York apartment of Jeffrey Epstein.

The CDC reports that 1 in 5 children are sexually abused.
9 out of 10 of the perpetrators are never brought to justice and never appear on sex offender registries.
They are protected by New York State laws.
