Trump co-defendant and attorney Kenneth Chesebro pled guilty on Friday in the Georgia election subversion case.

He pled guilty to one felony, which is conspiracy to commit filing false documents.

Prosecutors in Fulton County are recommending Chesebro serve 5 years probation and pay $5,000 in restitution, CNN reports.

He has agreed to testify in future trials regarding the Georgia election and will write an apology letter. 

Trump and 18 co-defendants were charged earlier this year on 13 felony charges related to alleged efforts to overturn the 2020 presidential election result in Georgia.

The charges include charges under the state's Racketeer Influenced and Corrupt Organizations (RICO) Act, as well as charges of conspiracy, making false statements and soliciting a public official to violate their oath.
