Accused Rioters Seek To Block Photo With Proud Boys

The Iowa Capitol Dispatch reports:

An Iowa mother accused of taking part in the U.S. Capitol riots with her son is attempting to block federal prosecutors’ use of a photo of her posing with the Proud Boys.

Deborah Sandoval of Des Moines and her son, Salvador Sandoval Jr. of Ankeny, were arrested 13 months ago and face charges that include violent entry and disorderly conduct on the Capitol grounds and entering or remaining in a restricted building without lawful authority.

Deborah Sandoval also faces a charge of impeding or disrupting the orderly conduct of government, and her son faces a charge of obstructing, impeding or interfering with law enforcement.

Read the full article. Lawyers for Sandoval argue that use of the photo would unfairly imply that she supports the Proud Boys and therefore prejudice the court against her.
