BREAKING: Trump, Giuliani, others to be booked at Fulton County jail

Suspects in Fulton County are booked and arraigned on two separate occasions.

Donald Trump and eighteen of his associates are expected to be booked at a Georgia jail when they turn themselves in to the authorities. The former president and his team were hit with a slew of charges on Monday following an investigation by Fulton County District Attorney Fani Willis into alleged attempts to overturn the results of the 2020 election.

Unlike in many areas of the country, suspects in Fulton County are booked and arraigned on two separate occasions, meaning the group will, unless otherwise allowed by the judge, have to travel to the jail to be processed.

"In Fulton County, GA, the booking process and arraignment/appearance process in criminal cases are two separate things," Sheriff’s Office spokeswoman Natalie Ammons told the New York Post, noting that, "some arraignments/appearances may be virtual as dictated by the presiding judge."

She added that "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."

Trump and co-defendants, Rudy Giuliani, John Eastman, Mark Meadows, Kenneth Chesebro, Jeff Clark, Jenna Ellis, Ray Smith III, Robert Sheeley, Michael Roman, David Shafer, Shawn Still, Stephen Lee, Harrison Floyd, Trevian Kutti, Sidney Powell, Cathleen Latham, Scott Hall, and Misty Hampton, were asked to by Willis turn themselves in by August 25.

According to the Sheriff's Office, the jail is "open 24/7," thus they can turn themselves in any time before then.

In his fourth indictment, Trump was charged with violating the Georgia RICO Act, solicitation of violation of oath by a public officer, conspiracy to commit impersonating a public officer, conspiracy to commit forgery in the first degree, conspiracy to commit false statements and writings, conspiracy to commit filing false documents, and filing false documents.

Under Georgia law, video cameras are permitted in courtrooms so long as they don't impact proceedings, meaning Americans may witness Trump's trial live on television.
