Colorado legal authorities reached an agreement on Tuesday with Jenna Ellis, a former lawyer for ex-President Donald Trump, which prevents her from practicing law in the state for three years. This decision follows her guilty plea for assisting Trump’s efforts to overturn the 2020 election.

Ellis tearfully admitted to felony charges of aiding and abetting false statements in Fulton County, Georgia, last October. She was among 18 co-defendants charged in a significant legal case related to Trump’s campaign to contest President Joe Biden’s victory in Georgia.

Earlier, Ellis had been reprimanded in Colorado for spreading falsehoods about the 2020 election, including claims that the election was “stolen” from Trump.

These statements were part of a broader effort by Trump’s supporters that contributed to the January 6, 2021, attack on the U.S. Capitol.

Colorado authorities pursued the latest case following Ellis’ legal issues in Georgia. They argued that her actions had caused tangible harm by eroding public trust in the presidential election process.

The case emphasized that Ellis played a role as an accessory rather than a principal in the events.

Ellis, who hails from Colorado and occasionally practices law there, resides in Florida and was not immediately available for comment. She joins a growing list of individuals facing legal consequences for their involvement in Trump’s efforts to overturn the 2020 election results.
