A Navy contractor from Colts Neck charged in the Jan. 6 Capitol riot, whom prosecutors have described as a white supremacist and Nazi sympathizer, is appealing a judge’s decision to keep him jailed before trial, arguing that he would pose no danger to the community if freed.
Timothy Louis Hale-Cusanelli, who was also a U.S. Army reservist based at Joint Base McGuire-Dix-Lakehurst, is asking a federal appeals court to reverse the March ruling by U.S. District Court Judge Trevor N. McFadden, who found that Hale-Cusanelli’s apparent willingness to act on a far-right ideology threatens public safety.
Interviews with Hale-Cusanelli’s co-workers revealed a history of racist and anti-Semitic remarks and behavior, including when he allegedly showed up to the base sporting a “Hitler mustache” in 2020, according to prosecutors.

“The government maintains that defendant is a danger… because of his white supremacist and Nazi sympathizing ideology,” Timothy Hale-Cusanelli’s attorney said.
He contends that his client can’t be considered a public danger on his beliefs alone. https://t.co/VYPshXX1Gd
