Michigan man found guilty of charges tied to Jan. 6 Capitol breach | #socialmedia


A federal jury this week found a Southgate man guilty of charges related to the Jan. 6, 2021, insurrection in Washington, D.C.

The trial for Anthony Robert Williams, 47, started Monday in the District of Columbia. 

On Thursday, jurors found him guilty of the felony offense of obstruction of an official proceeding and four related misdemeanor charges, the U.S. Department of Justice said.

The charges included entering and remaining in a restricted building or grounds; disorderly and disruptive conduct in a restricted building or grounds; disorderly conduct in a Capitol building; and parading, demonstrating, or picketing in a Capitol building.

“His actions and the actions of others disrupted a joint session of the U.S. Congress convened to ascertain and count the electoral votes related to the presidential election,” federal officials said in a statement Thursday.
