Former President Donald Trump is set to undergo standard legal procedures, including the taking of fingerprints and mugshots, following his recent indictment. Sheriff Pat Labat of Fulton County confirmed that Trump will surrender himself into custody and go through the necessary steps in Georgia’s legal system.
After being arraigned in court, where the charges will be formally presented, Trump will be asked to enter a plea. It is widely expected that he will plead not guilty. The judge will then decide whether to grant bail, and it is likely that Trump will be released on bail under the condition of returning for his trial.
Sheriff Labat emphasized that Trump will be treated like any other criminal defendant taken into custody. Regardless of his status, he will undergo standard procedures, including having his mugshot taken.
This recent development adds to Trump’s mounting legal troubles. He is facing multiple indictments, including charges related to the mishandling of classified documents, hush money payments to Stormy Daniels, and his attempts to overturn the 2020 election results in Washington, D.C. The indictment in Georgia is now his fourth legal case.
