A federal judge delivered a not guilty verdict for a patriot charged over his actions during the January 6, 2020 riot after members of the Capitol Police testified in the trial.
U.S. District Judge Trevor N. McFadden exonerated Matthew Martin, a Los Alamos, N.M.-based Energy Department contractor, and found him not guilty of misdemeanor charges of disorderly conduct and trespassing.
Martin maintained that the Capitol Police were right there beside the doors to the Capitol Building and made no attempt at all to stop anyone from trying to enter the facility.
During the trial, members of the police department admitted that they stood by and did not try to stop people from entering on the day left-wing, anti-American Democrats falsely claim that Trump supporters were trying to launch an “insurrection.”
According to the Washington Post, the judge ruled that Martin had every expectation of thinking that the police had allowed him to access the Capitol.
“At the time the defendant was on the scene, officers were standing beside the doors to let people pass,” Judge McFadden said in his ruling.
“People were streaming in and the officers made no attempt to stop people at the door … I do find the defendant reasonably believed the officers allowed him into the Capitol,” the judge added.
“No reasonable juror could find those actions to be disorderly. I don’t find his mere presence in a crowd inside the Capitol to be disorderly,” Judge McFadden said, adding that Martin’s behavior was “about as minimal and nonviolent as a protester could be in the Capitol.”
