Fulton judge: Two defendants in Georgia election interference case will be tried separately
A judge has ruled that Sidney Powell and Kenneth Chesebro, two of the 19 defendants in the Fulton County election interference case, will be tried separately from the others who have been charged in the case.
Powell, Chesebro, along with former President Donald Trump and 16 others face racketeering charges in the alleged attempt to overturn Georgia’s 2020 election results.
Powell and Chesebro requested a speedy trial, and Fulton County Superior Court Judge Scott McAfee set their court date for October 23rd. District Attorney Fani Willis intended for all 19 defendants to be tried together, but some of the other defendants stated that they will not have their case prepared by that deadline.
