The New York Times (NYT) said that former US President Donald Trump and his legal team are preparing for an unprecedented scene on Tuesday, as it will be the first time that a former US president facing criminal charges appears in court.

The indictment against Trump was kept confidential by the court on Friday, with details of the charges pending.

At his Florida residence, Mar-a-Lago, Trump prepared for the upcoming flight to surrender to authorities in New York after the surprising news Thursday night that a grand jury had voted to indict him.

The attorney representing Trump, Joe Tacubina, said on Friday that he understood from prosecutors that the former president would not be handcuffed when he turned himself into authorities next week.

While Tacubina admitted news of the indictment came as a shock to Trump on Thursday, it was understood he learned of the news from the press.

Tacubina said Trump expects to be arrested and arraigned - when he has been summoned to court to answer charges - on Tuesday afternoon in Manhattan, and that he intends to plead not guilty to all charges.
