Sources told The New York Post that District Attorney Fanny Willis plans to keep Trump in one of the holding cells while the case is considered. Trump’s lawyers want to reach an agreement on this early next week before the former president agrees to surrender.

“The secret service has a duty to protect the president, and given the way prisons have treated inmates in the past, they simply cannot allow that. This is yet another humiliation ritual and attempted political theater by corrupt processing.” the newspaper source said.

Last month, the Justice Department launched a federal civil rights investigation into the prison after receiving several complaints from inmates. The county sheriff’s office described the facility as “dilapidated and rapidly deteriorating.”

“People in prisons are entitled to basic protection of their civil rights,” US Attorney General Merrick Garland said in a statement.

“We launched this investigation into the Fulton County Jail based on serious allegations of unsafe and unsanitary jail conditions, excessive force and violence, discrimination against inmates with mental health issues, and a lack of proper medical care for incarcerated individuals.” said the attorney general. the said.

The move comes after 35-year-old Lashawn Thompson, whose family claimed he was mentally ill, died in prison in September 2022 after he was found eaten alive and covered in bedbugs. This story received a great response in America. “They put this man in this cell, left him there to die, and that’s exactly what happened,” Michael Harper, the family’s lawyer, told WABE.

Thompson became the seventh person to die in the Fulton County Jail last year. The prison also saw 11 fires, 534 fights, 114 stabbings, and at least two murders in 2022.

“It’s harder here than in a normal prison. I previously served six years in another prison and never got stabbed,” Domens Flannigan told Atlanta Magazine in July.

He was transported to the Fulton County Jail and miraculously survived with 35 stab wounds. As of May, the Fulton County Sheriff’s Office had 403 officers, 132 of whom were on prison staff. The prison is short 40 employees, a spokesperson for the sheriff’s office told the publication. The commission found that up to 450 prisoners were sleeping in shifts in overcrowded cells.

Trump, 77, and his 18 allies have been charged with breaking the law in the 2020 Georgia election case. In an interview on Fox Business on Thursday, Trump called the allegations a “witch hunt” and “something terrible for the country.”
