Lawyer Sidney Powell entered a guilty plea to lesser charges on Thursday concerning attempts to overturn Donald Trump’s defeat in the Georgia 2020 election.

Powell entered the plea just one day before jury selection for her trial was scheduled to begin.

Powell was charged with breaking the state’s anti-racketeering law, along with Trump and seventeen other people.

A judge decided that she would have to pay $2,700 in restitution, serve roughly six years of probation, and provide truthful testimony against her co-defendants.

She was first accused of racketeering and six other offenses as part of an elaborate plan to keep the Republican president in office following his loss to Democrat Joe Biden in the 2020 election. She allegedly took part in an illegal break-in at a rural Georgia county elections office, according to the prosecution.

Powell and attorney Kenneth Chesebro were set to go on trial on Monday following the filing of demands for a prompt trial by both parties. Friday was scheduled as the start of jury selection.

As a result of the development, Chesebro will stand trial by himself, but the prosecution said that they intended to explore the possibility of reaching a plea agreement with him.

Bail bondsman Scott Graham Hall, a less well-known defendant in the case, entered a guilty plea to five misdemeanor counts last month. He consented to testify in future proceedings and received a five-year probationary sentence.
