Attorney Rudy Giuliani surrendered to officials Wednesday at Georgia's Fulton County jail to face charges in connection to an alleged attempt to overturn the state's 2020 presidential election results in favor of former President Donald Trump.

Giuliani's bail was set at $150,000 on the 13 charges that he faces after he was indicted earlier this month alongside Trump and 17 other co-conspirators on state charges related to the alleged plot, court documents show.

The charges that Giuliani faces include racketeering, conspiracy to impersonate a public officer, and making false statements.

Before heading to Georgia on Wednesday morning, Giuliani expressed confidence about the case. 

"I feel very, very good about it because I'm defending the rights of Americans," he said outside of his Manhattan apartment.

Giuliani wanted to turn himself in before Trump surrenders to Georgia officials Thursday, according to CNN. The former president has asserted his innocence and is expected to post a $200,000 cash bond.

As of Wednesday morning, only five of the 19 codefendants had surrendered to Fulton County authorities.
