Peter Johnson, Chief Senior Assistant District Attorney at Fulton County, asked the court for special treatment for SPLC staff attorney Thomas Webb Jurgens. He is one of twenty-three people charged with domestic terrorism.
Johnson openly says that the SPLC contacted the district attorney’s office. He pushed the SPLC’s narrative in court.
While others defendants were being held without bond, Johnson wanted Jurgens released without being required to post a bond. The judge seemed shocked and gave Johnson some push-back. Eventually, she orders a tiny $5k bond. Jurgens is said to live in a $750k house, so this is a comically small bond for him.
