Alleged disorderly conduct of Capitolium asks judge to visit Peru to get married


Troy Williams, from Lexington, Kentucky, told a judge that her fiancé lives in Peru and plans to get married in a South American country. The 25-year-old prospective groom said a flight has been booked until Feb. 23, and court records say the journey would take about two weeks.

They face four charges of violating the attack, including access to a restricted building, harassment and illegal picketing. He has not yet had the opportunity to refer to a petition.

The Department of Justice did not request Williams’ arrest while he waited in court and released him after the arrest of a judge. Your request to visit Peru is in line with the conditions of your release, which require you to obtain a court order before any international trip.

According to court documents, Williams attended the incendiary speech of then-President Donald Trump on the day of the uprising and then joined the large crowd heading for the Capitol. He later admitted to FBI agents that, according to court documents, he entered the Capitol twice during the hours-long attack, saying he had succumbed to the “herd mentality” of pro-Trump mobs.

Williams reportedly told the FBI, “I didn’t do anything wrong or inciting. We were part of something, there are cops here, they tried to stop us, they wouldn’t let us in, but they wouldn’t fight us.”

The travel requests of people accused of rioting the Capitol have attracted national attention and condemnation from some legal analysts. But it is normal for defendants to file a travel request when they are released before trial, often without opposition from the Department of Justice.

Williams’ attorney did not send an immediate comment on Tuesday.
