First of Trump’s co-defendants surrenders at Fulton County jail in Georgia

August 22, 2023

Atlanta bail bondsman Scott Hall on Tuesday morning surrendered at the Fulton County jail on charges related to Georgia’s 2020 election.

On Monday Superior Court Judge Scott McAfee signed off on a $10,000 bond agreement for Hall, who along with former President Trump is among 19 co-defendants who were indicted by a grand jury in Fulton County last week.

Hall is facing seven criminal counts, including racketeering, a count with which all 19 co-defendants have been charged. Hall is also accused of conspiring to unlawfully access voter data and ballot counting machines at the rural Coffee County election office in Georgia on January 7, 2021.

Another co-defendant, former Trump attorney John Eastman, who authored the fake electors scheme to try to overturn President Biden’s 2020 electoral college victory, agreed to $100,000 bond.

Also on Monday, former President Trump’s attorneys agreed with Fulton County District Attorney Fani Willis, who brought the investigation, to a $200,000 bond. That evening Trump posted on Social Media that he’ll be turning himself in at the Fulton County jail on Thursday.
