A former publicist for Kanye West is among the 18 people who have been indicted along with Donald Trump for trying to overturn the election results in Georgia in 2020.
Trevian Kutti, who also did PR work for imprisoned sexual predator R. Kelly, is accused by Fulton County District Attorney Fani Willis of traveling to Atlanta to try to persuade an election worker to report fraud claims in testimony.
ABC 7 Chicago reports that Kutti and the other defendants have two weeks to surrender to authorities in Atlanta, the county seat of Fulton County.
The investigation, which lasted two years, also represents the fourth criminal case brought against Trump around the country.
