Smith, a lawyer at the firm Smith & Liss, advised alternate GOP electors who met in a committee room at the state Capitol, cast votes for Trump and signed documents falsely claiming Trump won.

He is the third defendant to surrender to the Fulton County Jail on Wednesday after David Shafer and Cathy Latham did so early Wednesday morning and have since been released. John Eastman and Scott Hall were booked yesterday and released hours later.

Fulton County District Attorney Fani Willis gave defendants until Friday at noon to surrender. Fourteen other co-defendants, including former President Donald Trump, have yet to turn themselves in.
