Prosecutors will not seek additional charges for a Pennsylvania woman accused of stealing House Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s laptop during the Jan. 6 riot at the Capitol after a jury deadlocked on charging her on two different counts.
Riley Williams was found guilty on six charges related to her actions during the Capitol riot in November, including one count of impeding police officers and participating in a civil disorder. However, the jury was deadlocked on two other charges related to aiding and abetting the theft of Pelosi’s laptop as well as an obstruction charge, failing to come to a verdict.
As a result, prosecutors announced Monday they would not call for a retrial on those final two charges, allowing the court to move forward with sentencing Williams in February.
