Atlanta bail bondsman Scott Hall on Tuesday became the first of former President Donald Trump’s 18 co-defendants to turn himself in to the Fulton County Jail, records show. 

The Fulton County grand jury accused Hall of conspiring to illegally access ballot counting machines and conspiring to commit election fraud in Georgia following the 2020 presidential election in which Trump lost the state.

Jail records show Hall had his bond set at $10,000 for all six charges that he faces. He is expected to be released after officials at the jail process him.

Meanwhile, attorney John Eastman surrendered to Fulton County officials Tuesday after he agreed Monday to post a $100,000 bond. CNN had initially reported that Eastman, who is accused of being the architect of the so-called "alternate electors" scheme, would turn himself in on Wednesday.

Trump had his bond set at $200,000 on Monday over the charges stemming from his alleged attempts to overturn the presidential election in Georgia. He said he plans on arraigned in Fulton County on Thursday.
