Scott Hall, a Georgia bail bondsman, pleaded guilty to five counts of conspiring to commit intentional interference with performance of election duties.
The deal includes Hall testifying at any trial for the other 18 defendants, including President Donald Trump:
Hall, 59, who was involved in a breach of election equipment, pleaded guilty Friday in Atlanta to five counts of conspiring to commit intentional interference with performance of election duties. The plea deal included an agreement to a sentence of five years of probation, a $5,000 fine and a letter of apology to the state.
Part of the plea deal requires Hall to testify against others at future trials or hearings of “any co-defendants” in the election racketeering case. The felony charges against Hall were dropped as part of the agreement.
Trump was not mentioned by name during Hall’s plea hearing, but a Fulton County prosecutor did mention co-defendant and former Trump attorney Sidney Powell as being involved in the alleged scheme to gain access to Dominion voting machines in Coffee County, Ga.
Hall cannot speak to the media until all trials have ended. He also cannot participate in any voting activities.
The indictment identified Hall “as participating in an effort to access the voting machines and equipment in Coffee County — a post-election bid by Trump allies who were purportedly investigating allegations of voter fraud in hopes of reversing Joe Biden’s victory in the state.”
