The dominoes are beginning to fall.
It appears that SCOTT HALL has become the first co-defendant in the Fulton election interference case to take a plea deal with prosecutors.
Former Republican poll watcher Scott Hall on Friday pleaded guilty to five criminal counts in the Georgia elections case, according to a live feed of a court hearing.
Hall and 18 others, including former U.S. President Donald Trump, were indicted in Fulton County, Georgia, last month with conspiring to reverse Trump’s 2020 presidential election loss in the state. Hall and former Trump lawyer John Eastman were the first of former President Donald Trump’s co-defendants to surrender at an Atlanta jail on Aug. 22.
Hall was charged in relation to the alleged breach of voting machine equipment in the wake of the 2020 election in Coffee County, Georgia.
Hall pleaded guilty Friday to five counts of “conspiracy to commit intentional interference with performance of election duties,” a misdemeanor, in an appearance before Fulton County Superior Court Judge Scott McAfee.
“Ultimately I do agree and find that there is a sufficient factual basis for the charges, and I find this guilty plea to be knowingly, voluntarily and intelligently entered,” McAfee said, after asking Hall a series of questions.
In accordance with a plea deal between Hall and prosecutors, McAfee sentenced Hall to one year of probation for each count, plus a $1,000 fine for each charge for a total of $5,000.
Hall agreed to testify truthfully when called, five years probation, a $5,000 fine, 200 hours of community service and a ban on polling and election administration-related activities. He also recorded a statement for prosecutors and pledged to pen a letter of apology to Georgia voters.
