Federal Judge Orders January 6 Defendant To Be Released From D.C. Jail

A federal judge has ordered that a January 6 defendant diagnosed with cancer be released from a D.C. jail after an inspection from U.S. Marshals found the prisoners were living in “deplorable” conditions.

U.S. District Judge Royce Lamberth said in a statement that the conditions in the jail were “deplorable” and “beyond belief” and ordered the immediate transfer of defendant Christopher Worrell to a different facility.

He stated that the “court has zero confidence” that the D.C. jail would provide proper treatment and not retaliate against Worrell.
