Most of the 230 rioters arrested after violent protests erupted in Washington D.C. following Donald Trump’s inauguration will be charged with felony rioting, federal prosecutors said on Saturday.
The charge carries a punishment of up to ten years in jail and a $25,000 fine.
Interim D.C. police chief Peter Newsham said Friday that 217 people were being charged with rioting. The arrests took place in a four-block stretch of downtown Washington around the time of President Trump’s swearing-in ceremony.
