Scott Hall Pleads Guilty in Georgia Election Interference Case


In a significant development, Scott Hall, one of the 18 co-defendants of former President Donald Trump in the Georgia election interference case, has pleaded guilty to multiple criminal charges.

First Defendant to Plead Guilty

Scott Hall, who works as a bail bondsman, is the first defendant in the case to plead guilty.

Guilty Plea and Sentencing

As part of a negotiated deal, Scott pleaded guilty to five misdemeanor counts. During the hearing in Fulton County Superior Court on Friday afternoon, Judge Scott McAfee announced that Scott will serve five years of probation. Additionally, Scott will have to pay a total of $5,000 and serve 200 hours of community service.

Original Charges and Allegations

Initially, Scott was charged with seven counts in the case. The case alleges an illegal conspiracy by Trump and the other defendants to overturn President Joe Biden’s electoral victory in Georgia’s 2020 election. Scott was accused of willfully tampering with electronic voting machines in Coffee County, Georgia, and collaborating with other co-defendants, including the pro-Trump lawyer Sidney Powell, to achieve this.

Change in Plea

Although Scott had previously pleaded not guilty, his attorney submitted a court filing earlier on Friday waiving his indictment in the case.

Response from Atlanta District Attorney’s Office

As of now, there has been no response from Atlanta District Attorney Fani Willis’ office regarding Scott’s guilty plea.
