Former President Donald Trump surrendered to the Fulton County Jail in Georgia on Thursday evening, following his indictment on four criminal charges related to his attempts to overturn the results of the 2020 election.
Trump was photographed by the jail’s mugshot camera, becoming the first US president to have his mugshot taken. The mugshot shows Trump looking tired and haggard, with his hair disheveled and his face unshaven.
Trump was released from the jail after posting a $250,000 bond. He is scheduled to appear in court on September 10.
The charges against Trump stem from his efforts to pressure Georgia officials to overturn the results of the 2020 election in his favor. Trump is accused of conspiracy to commit election interference, solicitation of election interference, and two counts of making false statements.
The charges were brought by Fulton County District Attorney Fani Willis, who is investigating Trump’s alleged attempts to interfere in the election. Willis said that Trump and his associates “engaged in a concerted effort to deceive voters,” and that they “used intimidation and threats to pressure public officials to change the outcome of the election.”
Trump is the first US president to be indicted on criminal charges while in office or after leaving office. His indictment is a major development in the ongoing investigation into his efforts to overturn the election results.
The implications of Trump’s indictment are still unclear. However, it is a significant step in the legal process and could lead to further charges against Trump.
In addition to the charges in Georgia, Trump is also facing federal criminal charges in New York. He is also under investigation by the Manhattan District Attorney’s office for possible financial crimes.
Trump has denied any wrongdoing and has vowed to fight the charges against him. It remains to be seen how the legal process will play out, but Trump’s indictment is a major development that could have far-reaching implications.
