The federal judge said they will be imprisoned before the trial.
Washington— Today, a federal judge ordered the arrest and imprisonment of two leaders of the far-right organization “Pride Boys”, pending trial. They will face charges of planning and coordinating an attack on the Federal Capitol in order to prevent Congress from proving the election victory. . President Biden (Joe Biden)
Since being indicted on March 10, Joseph Biggs and Ethan Nordean have been at large, but U.S. District Court Judge Timothy Kelly concluded, Both are dangerous, and there is no condition to release them. The judge pointed out that even if Biggs and Nordean did not arm or attack anyone on Capitol Hill on January 6, they “facilitated political violence.”
Kelly overturned the ruling of another federal judge in Washington, D.C., who ordered the pretrial house arrest of the Nordic people. Biggs was released on January 20 after his first arrest in Florida, where he lived. Initially, the Justice Department’s prosecutors did not ask Biggs to stay in jail, but last month they requested that Biggs’ release be revoked before the trial on the grounds that there was new evidence that he posed a “serious danger” to the community.
