A co-defendant in former President Donald Trump’s Georgia election interference case pleaded guilty Friday, according to multiple reports.
Scott Hall, who faced seven charges in relation to his alleged breach of a Coffee County election office, became the first of the 19 co-defendants to accept a plea deal on Friday before Judge Scott McAfee, according to The Hill. Hall, who owns a bail bond business, pleaded guilty to five charges.
“You understand that you’re pleading guilty today because you believe there exists a factual basis that supports the plea, and you are pleading guilty because you are, in fact, guilty?” McAfee asked Hall, according to The Hill.
Trump and his co-defendants were indicted on charges including violating Georgia’s “Racketeer Influenced and Corrupt Organizations” (RICO) Act in August.
