She pleads guilty to six counts of misconduct.
Sidney Powell, one of 18 co-defendants in former President Donald Trump’s election meddling suit in Georgia, has accepted a plea deal in the case.
He pleads guilty to six counts of misconduct, according to an agreement read in court Thursday. Each count carries 12 months of probation and a $6,000 fine.
As part of the agreement, according to Judge Scott McAfee, Powell must “testify truthfully about any codefendants” involved in the case and “provide to the district attorney’s office all documents” related to their case against the other co-defendants.
The plea comes a day before he is due to stand trial with co-defendant Kenneth Chesbro.
Chesebro rejected a similar plea deal with the state last month, according to sources, ABC News first reported yesterday.
Powell, a former Trump campaign lawyer, is accused of helping to tamper with voting machines in Coffee County.
According to the terms of her agreement, she “must have no contact” with any of the co-defendants or members of the media in the case.
He must write a letter of apology to the people of the state of Georgia, “and you’ve already been satisfied,” McAfee said during Thursday’s court proceedings.
Powell, Chesbro, Trump and 16 others pleaded guilty in August to all charges in a grand jury indictment that allegedly attempted to alter the results of the 2020 presidential election in the state of Georgia.
Powell is the second defendant in the case after Scott Hall took a plea deal in which he pleaded guilty to tampering with voting machine equipment.
Chesebro faces seven counts after prosecutors say he devised a strategy to use so-called “alternative voters” to prevent Joe Biden from getting 270 electoral votes in the 2020 presidential election, according to the indictment.
