ATLANTA (USA), August 24 (EFE) 2020 In state, this Thursday was published by the American media.
In the close-up photo, the Republican appears with a grim face and furrowed brows with a defiant expression towards the camera.
Trump complied with the court’s order and turned himself in at the Fulton Jail in downtown Atlanta this Thursday, though he was released on $200,000 bail.
In prison, his fingerprints and his first photograph during his arrest were taken for his court file.
The Republican is facing a fourth criminal indictment in Georgia, in connection with a bribery scandal involving actress Stormy Daniels, one of the classified documents he took from the White House, and an attack on the Capitol.
However, this is the first time that he has had to hand himself over to jail and have a photograph taken of him while under arrest, as the previous three cases only went to the court to read out the charges.
When the impeachment of the former president began in April, the Trump campaign put T-shirts on sale emulating the Republican’s mugshot to raise funds.
In Georgia, Fulton prosecutor Fannie Willis charged Republicans with 13 crimes for leading a Mafia conspiracy with 18 accomplices to overturn election results in the state, where Trump lost by a narrow margin against the incumbent president, Democrat Joe Biden. They went.
If convicted on all counts, the former Republican president could face up to 76.5 years in prison.
At least nine of the 19 defendants in the conspiracy have already surrendered at Fulton Jail and been released after paying bail, including Trump’s former lawyer and former New York mayor Rudy Giuliani, who is serving his last term. Looks very serious in the picture.
Others, on the other hand, chose to smile at the time of their signing, such as attorney Jenna Ellis or David Schaefer, former chairman of the Republican Party in Georgia, who also published his photo as a profile image on his social network.
