August 24, 2023: On Thursday, Trump’s bond in Georgia election interference case set at $200,000.
Scott Hall, a Georgia bail bondsman charged with seven criminal counts, was booked had yet to be released, according to the jail’s website.
All the co-defendants in the case must surrender at the jail by Friday. Trump, facing 13 criminal counts, said on social media late Monday that he would resign Thursday.
Trump’s announcement came hours after a judge in Fulton County set his bond at $200,000 and barred him from multiple forms of potential witness intimidation.
Hall’s bond was set at $10,000.
The 41-count indictment was brought by Fulton County District Attorney Fani Willis, who alleges that Trump and his co-defendants illegally conspired to overturn President Joe Biden’s victory in the presidential election by interfering in Georgia’s results.
Hall is charged with violating Georgia’s racketeering law, conspiracy to commit election fraud, conspiracy to commit a felony, and conspiracy to defraud the state.
Willis’ indictment accuses Hall of attempting to illegally break into election machines in Coffee County, Georgia, on January 7, 2021, the day after the attack on the Capitol in Washington.
The indictment alleges that hall and several other co-defendants, including pro-Trump lawyer Sidney Powell, willfully tampered with electronic ballot markers and Dominion tabulating machines to take data. According to the indictment, their efforts put official ballots into the hands of unauthorized people outside the county.
