Trump Faces Up to 20 Years in Prison on Georgia’s RICO Statute

Accompanied by 18 co-defendants, Trump received charges under Georgia’s Racketeer Influenced and Corrupt Organizations (RICO) statute, which criminalizes racketeering. Fulton County District Attorney Fani Willis asserted that Trump and his associates formed a “criminal organization” during their efforts to challenge the legitimacy of the 2020 election.
Former President Donald Trump faces a fourth indictment in Georgia, accused of leading a “criminal racketeering enterprise” aimed at overturning the 2020 election results.
This latest case marks a significant development, as it could potentially result in the release of Trump’s mugshot—the first instance in which the former president’s booking photo might be captured. Fulton County Sheriff Pat Labat confirmed his commitment to treating Trump like any other individual facing charges, indicating that a mugshot would be taken if he is indicted.
While Trump had his fingerprints recorded in prior indictments, this situation in Georgia is anticipated to follow different protocols. This has led us to speculate on what Trump’s potential mugshot could resemble.
Georgia’s RICO statute carries penalties of five to 20 years in prison.
