January 6th demonstrator Ray Epps was charged with disorderly conduct on Tuesday, nearly three years after the unrest that occurred at the Capitol.
Already, NBC News indicated that Epps plans to take a plea deal on the misdemeanor charge.
“Epps is charged with one misdemeanor count, disorderly or disruptive conduct on restricted grounds. He was charged by information which suggests that he plans to enter a plea deal,” NBC reported.
Epps has been scrutinized by conservative activists and lawmakers after people questioned why he wasn’t charged despite being a lead instigator of the unrest that occurred on January 6th.
He was caught on video telling demonstrators that they needed to ‘go into the Capitol’ and admitted over text that he ‘orchestrated’ the unrest.
