Donald Trump will be indicted Sept. 6 in Atlanta in the criminal trial alleging he conspired to overthrow Georgia’s 2020 presidential election, a court filing showed Monday morning.

Trump’s arraignment will take place in Fulton County Superior Court at 9:30 a.m. ET that day, and the former president will be asked to enter a plea bargain in the case at that time.

His former attorney, Rudy Giuliani, will be charged in the same case at his own hearing at 9:45 a.m. that day, court filings show.

The other 17 defendants in the case, which include Trump White House Chief of Staff Mark Meadows, other Trump-allied attorneys and potential pro-Trump Electoral College voters, are scheduled to appear in court beginning at 10 a.m. that day

Steven Sadow, Trump’s attorney on the Georgia case, did not immediately respond to a request for comment on the prosecution’s timeline.

All 19 defendants in the case turned themselves in in Atlanta last week to stand trial. Eighteen of them were released on bonds of varying amounts.

Only one of them, Harrison Floyd, remains in the Fulton County jail after being refused release.

One reason Floyd is being held in custody is because he failed to make a bail agreement with the prosecutor prior to his surrender.
