Rudy Giuliani's mugshot is released after he surrenders to Georgia authorities

Former New York City Mayor Rudy Giuliani surrendered to authorities at a jail in Atlanta, Georgia, on Wednesday. 

At the booking, a mugshot of the 79-year-old Giuliani was taken. And, according to Fox News, the mugshot has been released.

Take a look:

The mugshot of Giuliani can be found in the lower right-hand portion of the above photograph. Giuliani can be seen looking straight into the camera with a look of resolve on his face, suggesting that he is ready to fight the charges that have been brought against him.

Giuliani, himself, said as much during his post-arrest podcast.

"I guess I surrendered myself. But, I haven't surrendered. I went there and made my statement to fight," Giuliani said.

Giuliani is one of the nearly 20 individuals who have been indicted - along with former President Donald Trump - by Fulton County District Attorney Fani Willis (D). Willis has accused the defendants of committing crimes by attempting to challenge Georgia's results in the 2020 presidential election.

Fox reports that Giuliani is specifically "charged with making false statements and soliciting false testimony, conspiring to create phony paperwork, and asking state lawmakers to violate their oath of office to appoint an alternate slate of pro-Trump electors."

Legal experts - at least the ones who make a good faith attempt to provide non-partisan legal analysis, such as renowned defense attorney Alan Dershowitz - argue that Willis' charges are not founded in law, but in politics. Dershowitz emphasizes the point that the ways in which Trump and his associates attempted to challenge the results of the 2020 election are by no means illegal or even unusual.

This, however, does not mean that Willis will not obtain convictions. It has to be remembered that the case is taking place in an anti-Trump region of Georgia. So, it will not be surprising if Willis obtains a conviction, but any conviction would be expected to be overturned on appeal - at some point.

Giuliani had to post a $150,000 bond on Wednesday, which was second in amount only to Trump's $200,000.

Many commentators argue that these bond requirements further prove that Willis's prosecution is political because bonds are typically only required when a defendant is a flight risk or a danger to the community and neither Trump nor Giuliani are either of those things.

Following his arrest and release, Giuliani said:

This case is an attack on our system of justice, not just on me. There are 18 other people involved here, all of whom are completely innocent. Some of these people I don't even know, and they're being indicted for contesting an election when I have an incredible amount of evidence.
