Donald Trump and the 18 other co-defendants indicted in Georgia for their efforts to overturn the 2020 election results in the state will be booked at the Fulton County jail, the sheriff’s office said.
“At this point, based on guidance received from the District Attorney’s office and presiding judge, it is expected that all 19 defendants named in the indictment will be booked at the Rice Street Jail,” Fulton County Sheriff’s Office spokesperson Natalie Ammons said in a statement, according to CNN.
“Keep in mind, defendants can turn themselves in at any time,” the statement reads. “The jail is open 24/7. Also, due to the unprecedented nature of this case, some circumstances may change with little or no warning.”
Trump was indicted after a nearly two-year investigation by Fulton County District Attorney Fani Willis into the former president’s efforts to pressure state officials to overturn Georgia’s election results.
The 41-count indictment accuses Trump and 18 other defendants of unlawfully conspiring and endeavoring to “conduct and participate in a criminal enterprise” after Trump lost the 2020 presidential election in Georgia.
Trump faces several charges including issuing false statements, impersonating a public officer, conspiracy and racketeering.
Willis has given the defendants in the case until noon on Friday, Aug. 25, to voluntarily surrender.
