Over 200 Inauguration Day Rioters Indicted

February 9, 2017

NBC News has reported that 209 people have thus far been indicted over felony rioting charges, meaning they face a fine of up to $25,000 and a maximum of 10 years in prison.

 

The Washington Post reported that 230 people were arrested during President Donald Trump’s inauguration on January 20, with several cases being subsequently dismissed.

As of last Saturday, federal investigators were still poring over hundreds of hours of video - some of it captures by undercover Washington, D.C. police officers during the riots and protests - and still photos. Local officers wore body cameras while on duty at the riots and protests.

 

Defense attorneys for the accused have said that many of their clients are college students who live outside of the Washington, D.C., Maryland, or Virginia.
