  • His latest indictment includes 37 separate charges.
  • Legal experts believe a plea agreement is unlikely.
  • A former president has never served jail time.

Could Donald Trump actually face prison time if convicted? That's the million-dollar question. Two weeks ago the 45th president was hit with a 37-count federal indictment. The 49-page document was unsealed and released to the media, and on its face, it appears to be more serious than his March indictment in New York. If he violated the Espionage Act, he could become the first president to see the inside of a prison cell in US history. Sportsbooks placed the odds of him serving prison for his March indictment at +2000, but his recent legal trouble has caused them to reevaluate that market.

It may take more than a year for Trump to appear in court for either of his cases. Prosecutors and Trump's legal team will be filing briefs, exchanging documents, and potentially meeting to negotiate a plea agreement between now and then.

While Trump remains adamant that he has done nothing wrong, the mounting pressure may force him and his legal team to the negotiation table. Prior to his federal indictment, the odds of him taking a plea deal were set at +300 Yes / -500 No. While this market has only shifted slightly, it is still worth noting the movement.

No +2000 4.76%

His chances of winning the Republican nomination remain incredibly strong. Even with all of these issues, he has maintained a virtually insurmountable lead against fellow Republicans. And if there is any major delay in his criminal cases, he could push off all legal ramifications to 2025.
