Former leader of Black Voices for Trump remains in jail

Harrison Floyd, former leader of the Black Voices for Trump, will remain in Fulton County Jail for the foreseeable future after claiming he could not afford an attorney.

“An attorney would cost $40,000 to $100,000. I can’t afford it,” Harrison told Judge Emily Richardson. 

Harrison requested a public defender but he didn’t qualify to be represented by one. Floyd, Former President Donald Trump, and 16 others were ordered to report to Fulton County Jail for attempting to overthrow the last presidential election.

Floyd is charged with violating the state’s RICO Act, conspiracy to commit solicitation of false statements in writing, and influencing witnesses.

Floyd, a former U.S. Marine and mixed martial arts fighter, is accused of participating in a scheme to pressure an election worker to falsely admit to voting fraud.

In a separate case, Floyd was arrested in Maryland in May and charged with assaulting FBI agents who tried to serve him with a subpoena, court records show.
