Inset: Scott Hall, left, accompanied by his lawyer Jeffrey Weiner, is sworn in shortly before pleading guilty to misdemeanor charges in the Georgia RICO case against Donald Trump for alleged interference with the 2020 presidential election (screengrab of Zoom hearing via Fulton County (Ga.) Superior Court).

A Georgia bail bondsman is the first to plead guilty in the state’s criminal conspiracy case against former President Donald Trump and more than a dozen co-defendants.

Scott Graham Hall, 59, was accused in Fulton County District Attorney Fani Willis‘ sweeping indictment of Trump and 18 others of plotting to subvert the 2020 election results in the Peach State. Hall was specifically alleged to have committed multiple felonies, including travelling to Coffee County, Georgia, “for the purpose of assisting with the unlawful breach of election equipment.” He was also accused of tampering with electronic ballot makers and voting machines and illegally stealing voter data.

On Friday afternoon he pleaded guilty to five misdemeanors.

“How do you plead to the five counts of conspiracy to commit intentional interference with performance of election duties?” a court official asked as Fulton County Superior Court Judge Scott McAfee oversaw the proceedings.

“Guilty,” Hall replied.
