Rudy Giuliani was treated and processed like “everybody else” who is booked at the local jail — a process that includes fingerprints and mugshots being taken, Fulton County Sheriff Pat Labat told CNN.
The arrest, booking and release of Giuliani took less than an hour.
CNN previously reported that defendants in the election subversion case have been quickly ushered through the process, which typically stretches for multiple hours.
A total of 19 defendants in this case are facing charges stemming from efforts to overturn the 2020 presidential election results in Georgia.
When asked if the booking process was expedited for Giuliani, Labat said it was the “same process as all 19.”
Several defendants, including former President Donald Trump, have yet to turn themselves in. They have until noon ET on Friday to do so.
After emerging from jail, Giuliani told reporters: “I am very, very honored to be involved in this case because this case is a fight for our way of life.”
He went on to say that Fulton County District Attorney Fani Willis “will go down in American history as having conducted one of the worst attacks on the American Constitution ever when this case is dismissed.”
Giuliani visited a bail bonds agent afterward.
