(Reuters) - Former Donald Trump lawyer Rudy Giuliani said on Monday that he posted a $10,000 bond in Arizona on charges he tried to subvert the 2020 election results in the state.

Giuliani, a former New York mayor, said on his America's Mayor Live social media show that he had posted his bond and had been fingerprinted and had a mugshot taken at the Maricopa County sheriff's office.

After hours calls to the Maricopa County sheriff's office and to the Maricopa County Superior Court clerk's office where Giuliani said he posted bail were not returned.

"It's hard for me to believe ... that I actually had to report as a defendant in a criminal case," Giuliani said on his show.

It was last month that Giuliani was ordered to post the bond after he allegedly eluded authorities' attempts to serve him court papers accusing him of trying to subvert the 2020 election.

Giuliani has pleaded not guilty to charges that he conspired to falsely claim Arizona's electoral votes for Trump in 2020 following Trump's narrow loss to Democratic President Joe Biden. His trial is scheduled to begin in October.

Giuliani is one of 18 defendants in the case brought by Arizona's Democratic attorney general, Kris Mayes.

Giuliani and the other defendants are facing conspiracy, fraud and forgery charges over their efforts to assemble a slate of electors from Arizona pledged to support Trump, a bid to undermine certification of the 2020 election.

Trump, a Republican, who will face off against Biden in the November presidential election, continues to falsely claim that his defeat was the result of fraud.
