On Monday, a former police officer who stormed the Capitol in Washington DC on January 6, 2021, was found guilty by a jury on six charges, various American media reported.
The man was still employed as a police officer during the storm, although he was not on duty at the time.
The officer in question, Thomas Robertson, entered the U.S. House of Representatives along with another former police officer. That man pleaded guilty last month and then testified against Robertson in his trial.
Robertson was found guilty, among other things, of obstructing an official procedure of the US parliament. His sentence will be determined later.
Of the 800 people charged for their role in the storming of the Capitol, Robertson is only the second suspect to reach a jury trial. Most suspects settle with the prosecutor.
