( – The New Jersey attorney general’s office is looking into whether or not former President Donald Trump’s conviction in the hush money case in New York should have any effect on his liquor licenses for the three golf courses he has in the state. 

An attorney general office spokesperson confirmed that the Trump National Golf Club Pine Hill, the Lamington Farm Club, and the Trump National Golf Club Colts Neck continued to be active with their liquor license. 

The Division of Alcoholic Beverage control of the office is reportedly looking into how the conviction of the former President should affect the licenses of the three locations, however, the spokesperson noted in an email that at this time there were no further comments on this issue. 

New Jersey law specifies that liquor licenses cannot be issued for people who are under the age of 18 or for people who have been convicted of crimes that involve “moral turpitude.” As defined by the handbook this means crimes that are considered by American society to be serious. It also specifies that those who are applying for liquor licenses will need to be of “reputable” character and that they have to handle their business in a “reputable manner.” 

Last month a New York jury found Trump to be guilty on all 34 counts of falsifying business records in connection to a payment made to an adult film star ahead of the 2016 presidential election in exchange for her silence over their alleged affair a decade earlier. Trump has repeatedly denied the affair and has pleaded not guilty to all the charges. 

Trump’s sentencing is scheduled to take place around four days before next month’s Republican National Convention.
