Versailles Man Charged In Capitol Riot In Court Today
A 55-year old Versailles man who has been charged with crimes against the United States for his involvement in the January 6 insurrection will be in federal court today.
Matthew Eugene Loganbill is charged with Obstruction of a Congressional Proceeding, Unlawful Entry, and Violent Entry or Disorderly Conduct for his role in the January attack on the Capitol.
Loganbill, a firearms dealer in Versailles, came to the attention of the FBI after two confidential witnesses contacted them with information that Loganbill had published several posts about his involvement in the insurrection on Facebook.
The status hearing today could determine if a plea deal could be negotiated. If a plea deal is not reached the judge could set a date for a preliminary hearing.
Loganbill faces the possibility of 10 years and six months in prison and/or a total of $505,000 in fines if convicted.
