Scott Hall became the first of former President Donald Trump’s 18 co-defendants to turn himself in at the Fulton County Jail on Tuesday.
Hall, who works as a bail bondsman in Atlanta, has been charged by Fulton County District Attorney Fani Willis with crimes related to his alleged involvement in violating the electoral system in Coffee County, Georgia.
According to prison records, Hall is currently in custody and has an inmate identification number.

Hall signed a bail agreement with Willis on Wednesday and was set to be released after being processed in prison.
All 19 defendants in the case, who were indicted last week, including Trump, are expected to appear this week before a deadline set by Willis on Friday.

Trump said he would surrender to the courthouse on Thursday. His bail was set at $200,000. Another condition of his release is that he must not use social media to target his 18 co-defendants in the case, as well as any witnesses and the 30 co-conspirators not accused.
Hall was charged with plotting a January 7, 2021 conspiracy to unlawfully access voter records and ballot counting machines at the Coffee County Electoral Bureau. He was seen on surveillance video in the office on the day of the violation.
The violation is part of the overall charges Willis has brought in the case, and it was committed by Trump allies who were convinced voter fraud existed in the state. No evidence of cheating was found and multiple recounts confirmed Biden’s win.
Meanwhile, Attorney John Eastman surrendered to Fulton County on Wednesday.
Eastman, another of the 18 co-defendants, settled with Willis on $100,000 bail.

After the 2020 election, Eastman pushed a six-step plan for then-Vice President Mike Pence to overturn Joe Biden’s victory while presiding over electoral college certification on Jan. 6, 2021.
Pence refused to do so, citing that the Constitution only grants the vice president ceremonial authority to oversee election certification.
Eastman also urged Georgia state lawmakers to appoint fake GOP voters to replace the legitimate Democratic voter slate.
