WASHINGTON, D.C., USA — A Maine man charged in connection with the January 6 riot at the Capitol is asking for his trial to be moved.
Kyle Fitzsimons wants his trial to come to Maine because he lives and was arrested here.
The Lebanon resident was indicted by a federal grand jury on 10 charges including:
He is charged with the following:
- Knowingly entering or remaining in any restricted building or grounds without lawful authority
- Violent entry and disorderly conduct on Capitol grounds
- Assault on a federal officer
- Certain acts during a civil disorder
According to a criminal complaint filed by the FBI, Fitzsimons was seen pushing and grabbing police officers who were holding a police line in an arched entranceway on the lower west terrace of the Capitol Building. He has been in jail since February.
