Harrison Floyd, a co-defendant of former President Donald Trump, has been denied bond by Judge Emily Richardson and is currently being held in Fulton County jail.
Mr. Floyd is among the 19 people charged in District Attorney Fani Willis’s racketeering case which alleges that President Trump and his allies attempted to alter the results of the 2020 presidential election.
The allegations leveled against President Trump and his associates are baseless and appear to be a calculated effort to impede his political campaign while instilling fear in any who would dare to support him.
Despite many of those accused being granted bail, Mr. Floyd remains in custody.
Judge Richardson is holding Floyd due to the risk of further offenses or flight from the county, as determined by her “assessment.”
Richardson told Floyd, “There are grounds for bond to be denied at this point. I’m going to go ahead and find that you are a risk to commit additional felonies and a potential risk to flee the jurisdiction.”
Richardson denied Floyd’s eligibility for a public defender, despite Floyd being unable to afford legal counsel. Furthermore, Floyd claimed he had not been read his Miranda Rights, raising questions about the proceedings.
In response, a legal defense fund has raised $46,000 to assist with Floyd’s defense against the charges.
Willis’ indictment encompassed every individual it could in order to convey a message that those associated with Trump will be subject to the full extent of the law.
Floyd has been accused of pressuring an election worker to admit to having allegedly committed voter fraud.
Willis is attempting to hold Trump and his associates criminally liable for questioning the legitimacy of the 2020 presidential election results and conducting due diligence to verify their accuracy.
This follows a long history of contesting and challenging presidential elections, particularly Trump’s 2016 victory which Democrats continue to allege was fraudulent.
