(TheRedAlertNews.com) – HAPPENING NOW: A defendant associated with former President Donald Trump’s case regarding alleged interference in Georgia’s elections has entered a guilty plea and has agreed to testify against Trump and the other defendants.
Scott Hall, facing allegations tied to a breach at Coffee County’s election department, is the initial person among the 19 accused to agree to a plea arrangement, as per The Hill. Hall, a bail bond business proprietor, acknowledged his guilt on five counts.
Judge McAfee questioned Hall during the proceedings, as reported by The Hill, “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?”
In August, the former president and the others involved were charged with offenses, which included breaches of Georgia’s RICO Act.
The Messenger highlighted that Hall was penalized with a $5,000 fine and was given a year’s probation for each offense.
The publication also mentioned that Hall concurred with the statement that he “aided, abetted and encouraged” staff from Sidney Powell’s company “in willfully tampering with electronic ballot markers and tabulating machines.”
Charges against Hall, filed in August, comprised two instances of scheming to commit election fraud, a single count each of planning to commit computer theft, planning a computer trespass, conspiring for computer privacy invasion, and conspiring to deceive the state, in addition to breaking the RICO Act.
