First Georgia RICO Defendant in Election Interference Case Pleads Guilty

Scott Hall, a bail bondsman from Atlanta, is one of 19 defendants, along with Donald Trump, named in the 41-count Fulton County, Georgia election interference indictment. Hall was charged with 7 counts, and is the first defendant in that case to plead guilty.

Hall pled guilty to five counts of conspiracy to commit intentional interference with the performance of election duties. He was sentenced to 5 years probation, a $5,000 fine, and 200 hours of community service. He is also required to write a letter of apology to all Georgia citizens about his actions.

Hall was accused of assisting in the voting machine breaches in Coffee County, Georgia, that serve as one of the indictment’s key component. He was recorded saying that he and others involved in the voting machine breaches had “scanned every freaking ballot” in Coffee County. He also said others he was working with “went in there and imaged every hard drive of every piece of equipment.”

Videos released from Coffee County show Hall participating in the operation.

Hall’s plea comes just weeks before defendant Sidney Powell, who is also named in allegations concerning the Coffee County voting machine breaches, is due to start trial, on October 23, 2023.
