Little Rock, Arkansas – A federal trial has been delayed for an Arkansas man who was photographed with his feet on a desk in House Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s office during the Jan. 6 U.S. Capitol riot.
On Monday, a federal judge moved the trial for Richard Barnett, of Gravette, from Sept. 6 to Dec. 12.
This comes because Barnett’s attorney has been recovering from COVID-19 and Lyme disease.
Barnett was among supporters of President Donald Trump who stormed the Capitol as lawmakers assembled to certify Joe Biden’s victory over Trump.
According to prosecutors, Barnett was carrying a stun gun when he entered the building.
Barnett has pleaded not guilty to federal charges, including entering and remaining in a restricted building with a dangerous weapon, theft of government property and disorderly conduct.
