“Kraken” lawyer Sidney Powell avoids prison with a guilty plea on the eve of his election interference trial

Sidney Powell, a former lawyer for Donald Trump and a co-defendant in his election interference case in Georgia, pleaded guilty Thursday to six misdemeanor counts of conspiring to interfere with the 2020 election.

According to a plea agreement read in court, she will serve 12 months’ probation on each count, pay a $6,000 fine and testify against her co-defendants.

Powell reached the agreement just a day before her trial began alongside co-defendant Kenneth Chesebro.

She was accused of spreading election conspiracies involving Venezuela, Cuba and China as well as George Soros, Hugo Chávez and the Clintons, all with the aim of overturning Joe Biden’s election victory, prosecutors said.
