Michigan man goes to federal court in connection with charges from Capitol Protest on Jan. 6

A mid-Michigan man says he’s innocent of the charges brought against him in connection with the Jan. 6, 2021, Capitol riot in Washington.

Isaac Thomas of Genesee County appeared in U.S. District Court in Flint on Thursday, WJRT-TV reported.

“I was being told I was being charged with one count of second-degree misdemeanor for trespassing. I get in there today, they hand me this paper that says you are a felon,” Thomas said after the hearing.
