BOISE, Idaho (AP) — An Idaho man who posted online videos of himself bragging about taking part in the violent siege on the U.S. Capitol last month has been charged by a federal grand jury with four crimes related to the insurrection.
Thirty-four-year-old Josiah Colt of Boise turned himself into law enforcement on Jan. 12. He was wanted on a U.S. Marshal’s warrant.
On Wednesday, he was indicted on four criminal counts, including obstructing official proceedings and aiding and abetting, which carries a maximum penalty of up to 20 years in prison.
Five people died in the attack on the U.S. Capitol and more than 100 police officers were injured.
