COLUMBIA, Mo. (KMIZ)
A judge found a Versailles, Missouri, man guilty Thursday of a felony and four misdemeanors related to the Jan. 6, 2021, riot at the U.S. Capitol.
Matt E. Loganbill, 56, was convicted by U.S. District Judge Amy Berman Jackson in Washington, D.C., of obstructing an official proceeding, entering and remaining in restricted 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.
Loganbill is set for sentencing on March 12, 2024.
Loganbill, clad in a helmet and gas mask and carrying a backpack and American flag, was among the rioters who went into the Capitol to disrupt the certification of Joe Biden's presidential election victory, according to federal prosecutors. He entered the Upper West Terrace doors after outnumbered police officers retreated, prosecutors say.
Loganbill described his involvement in social media and text messages after the riot, according to a news release.
Charges against Loganbill were dismissed but refiled in August.
