Hall had been charged with racketeering and a half-dozen conspiracy charges related to the alleged tampering with election equipment in Coffee County.

Hall is one of 19 co-defendants in the case charged with trying to overturn the results of the 2020 election. The rest have all pleaded not guilty.

Other co-defendants in the charges dealing with the election equipment include Sidney Powell, whose trial is scheduled to start Oct. 23; Cathy Latham and Misty Hampton.

Scott Hall, an Atlanta-based bail bondsman, allegedly met with a group from the data solutions firm Sullivan Strickler at the Coffee County’s election office, who copied data from the election management system server and other voting systems, the AP reported. The company said it believed its clients had the necessary permission. Hall faces seven charges in the indictment, which include violation of the RICO Act, conspiracy to commit election fraud and conspiracy to defraud the states.

Hall was indicted on charges of helping employees of an electronic forensics company, SullivanStrickler, tamper with ballot markers and tabulating machines while inside the Coffee County elections office, according to the indictment.

The conspiracy charges covered election fraud, computer theft, invasion of privacy and defrauding the state.

Hall allegedly flew from DeKalb-Peachtree Airport to Douglas Municipal Airport in Coffee County on Jan. 7, 2021, to help with the unlawful breach of equipment, according to the indictment.

Hall also allegedly investigated potential election fraud contacting other co-defendants, including former assistant attorney general Jeffrey Clark and Robert Cheeley, according to the indictment.
