Jenna Ellis, a former Trump attorney, enters a guilty plea in the Georgia election tampering case.

ATLANTA – In the Georgia election meddling case, attorney Jenna Ellis has filed a guilty plea.

Jenna Ellis is the fourth defendant to enter a guilty plea in the extensive racketeering case centered on actions taken to preserve the position of then-President Donald Trump following his loss to Joe Biden in 2020.

Just before the trial started last week, attorneys Sidney Powell and Kenneth Chesebro submitted guilty pleas. Scott Hall entered a guilty plea in September. Jenna Ellis pleaded guilty to one felony count of aiding and abetting false statements and writings in return for truthful evidence in subsequent cases. He was accused of fraud on two counts.

The plea bargain also stipulates 100 hours of community service, five years of probation, $5,000 in restitution to the Georgia Secretary of State’s office, and a letter of apology to the people of Georgia.

Jenna Ellis‘s accusation is based on statements made by Trump’s attorneys, Rudy Giuliani and Ray Smith, during a Senate Judiciary Committee subcommittee hearing in Georgia on December 3, 2020, in which they alleged widespread election fraud.

Giuliani and Smith, co-defendants in the Georgia lawsuit, said that thousands of children, convicts, and deceased individuals cast ballots in Georgia in the 2020 election. Jenna Ellis admitted to encouraging this evidence, which the prosecution claims was done in an effort to convince the legislature to ignore Biden’s victory in Georgia.

At the Tuesday plea hearing, the prosecutor, Daisha Young, stated that the false claims were made with contempt for the truth.

Alice sobbed as she wanted to address the court.

What I didn’t do, but should have done, darling, said Jenna Ellis, was to make sure that the information other lawyers claimed to be genuine was indeed true. I moved so swiftly to try to dispute the election in several states, including Georgia, that I didn’t finish my homework. Election integrity is something I respect and believe in. I wouldn’t have agreed to defend Donald Trump in these post-election disputes if I knew then what I know now.”

After entering a plea of guilty to a felony count of encouraging the creation of false claims and writing, Jenna Ellis spoke with her lawyer Franklin Hogue in court in Atlanta on Tuesday.

A Colorado judge censured Jenna Ellis earlier this year after he admitted to making many misleading claims concerning the 2020 presidential race.

Judge Scott McAfee of Georgia’s Fulton County Superior Court has not yet scheduled a trial date for the other co-defendants, which includes Trump.

The Georgia trial is not anticipated to start before next spring since the former president’s federal election meddling trial is set to start in March.
