Jenna Ellis reached a plea agreement with prosecutors in the Georgia 2020 election interference case on Tuesday, becoming the third former Trump campaign attorney to do so.

Ellis, who described herself as part of an "elite strike force team" of attorneys combating unfounded claims of election fraud, pleaded guilty to one count of aiding and abetting false statements and writings.

"If I knew then what I know now, I would have declined to represent Donald Trump in these post election challenges," a tearful Ellis told the judge.

Like the others who took plea deals, Ellis agreed to testify truthfully against her co-defendants, including Trump.

She was sentenced to five years of probation, 100 hours of community service and ordered to pay $5,000 in restitution and write a letter of apology to Georgia citizens.

"How do you plead to aiding and abetting false statements and writings," Fulton County prosecutor Daysha Young asked.

"Guilty," Ellis responded.

Fulton County District Attorney Fani Willis (D) charged Ellis, the former president and 17 others in August in a sprawling racketeering indictment that accused all of them of entering a conspiracy to keep Trump in power following the 2020 election.

Since the indictment, four of the 19 co-defendants have taken plea deals with prosecutors. Scott Hall, a former bail bondsman, last month was the first to do so.

In recent days, three Trump attorneys have followed suit and agreed to testify against the former president.

Sidney Powell and Kenneth Chesebro took plea deals late last week, and Ellis joined them on Tuesday.

Sounds like a load of BS the only thing she is sorry about is that she is getting caught.

All of the attorneys who pled guilty should have their law licenses suspended, if not outright revoked.  They have proven that they hold the courts in contempt, and that they are unable to practice law ethically.

It’s gotten to the point that the decision to defend Donald Trump period means you are incapable of practicing law ethically.

If Trump takes a plea deal it should be similar. I'm not sure he'll be offered one though.

What are the eligibility criteria for a plea deal other than the prosecutor offering one and the defense accepting?

Poorly stated on my part.. Once Fanni Willis has all the 'flippers' she needs, she won't be handing out any more plea deals.

The interesting thing about all these individual numbers (that purport to be specific)  is that they were almost certainly created out of thin air.
