Stephen Lee surrendered an hour before Friday’s noon deadline, according to Fulton County Jail records and WSB.

Lee is a police chaplain from Illinois and is charged with violating the Georgia RICO Act, two counts of criminal attempt to commit influencing witnesses, conspiracy to commit solicitation of false statement and writings and influencing witnesses.

The charges stem from allegations of the intimidation of poll worker Ruby Freeman, whom Lee is said to have made a surprise visit at her home in mid-December 2020.

Police have body camera footage of Lee admitting that he had knocked on Freeman’s door offering “pro bono service.”

He is also accused of speaking with Harrison Floyd, another of the 19 defendants in the case, to arrange a meeting with Freeman to talk about an “immunity deal” if she gave false admission of committing election fraud, WSB reported.

Earlier this week several other co-defendants turned themselves in to Fulton County officials to be booked and have their mug shots taken.

Those included Rudy Giuliani, Sidney Powell, Mark Meadows, John Eastman and Trump himself who was booked and released on Thursday night.
