Prez Trump to be treated as any ‘common inmate’

Amid expectation that former US President Donald Trump would surrender at the Fulton County Jail on Thursday, The Fulton County Sheriff Patrick Labatt has said that Trump will be treated like local inmates during the booking process, with no special accommodations accorded, according to the Epoch Times.

Trump, along with 18 others, was on 14 August indicted by a grand jury in Georgia for alleged attempts to overturn the results of the 2020 election. If convicted and slapped with a maximum sentence on all 13 counts, President Trump will be looking at up to 76.5 years in prison, the paper said.

Two of the co-defendants—lawyer John Eastman and bail bondsman Scott Hall— who surrendered at the Fulton County jail on Tuesday were given an inmate identification number and released after spending roughly an hour at the premises, it said.
