Trump Expected to Surrender to Fulton County Jail Next Week

Former President Donald Trump is anticipated to turn himself in at the Fulton County jail either next Thursday or Friday, as disclosed by an informed senior law enforcement figure to the press.

On Monday, Trump, along with 18 other associates, faced charges related to an alleged scheme to overturn Georgia’s 2020 election results.

Following the disclosure of the 41-count indictment, Fulton County District Attorney Fani Willis designated August 25 as the date for their turn-in.

Discussions between Trump’s attorneys and Willis’ prosecution team will likely extend into the upcoming week, leading up to the surrender deadline. The specific date of Trump’s surrender is yet to be determined.

Currently, Trump is up against 91 accusations over four legal cases. The procedure for his surrender and court appearance in Georgia is believed to differ from those in his earlier three legal battles.

Fulton County’s Sheriff, Pat Labat, hinted in past statements that he aims to handle Trump and the indicted individuals similar to regular suspects. This might entail taking their photos and acquiring their fingerprints.

The indictment portrays Trump as the leader of a “criminal enterprise” aimed at a widespread plot to reverse his electoral loss in 2020.

The roster of those charged in Georgia includes previous White House Chief of Staff, Mark Meadows, and Trump’s former lawyer, Rudy Giuliani.

For the past few weeks, the US Secret Service has been stationed at Fulton County’s Jail, collaborating with the local Sheriff’s Office and Atlanta city officials in preparation for the ex-president’s submission, as confirmed by a USSS representative to the media.
