Versailles Man Has Federal Charges Refiled In 2021 Insurrection

A Versailles resident, previously accused of involvement in the January 6, 2021 insurrection, has seen his federal charges refiled.

Back in January 2022, Matthew Eugene Loganbill faced charges of Obstruction of a Congressional Proceeding, Unlawful Entry, and Violent Entry or Disorderly Conduct. During an FBI interview on January 13, 2022, Loganbill openly admitted to breaching the Capitol, donning a gas mask, and making threats towards a police officer. He claimed that despite witnessing altercations between police and the crowd, he did not observe any signage indicating that he was entering a restricted area.

However, the initial charges against Loganbill were dropped, and on August 23, 2023, new charges were filed against him. These charges include Obstruction of an Official Proceeding, Aiding and Abetting, Entering and Remaining in a Restricted Building or Grounds, Disorderly and Disruptive Conduct in a Restricted Building or Grounds, Disorderly Conduct in a Capitol Building, and Parading, Demonstrating, or Picketing in a Capitol Building.

Loganbill is scheduled for arraignment on September 14, with his trial set to take place on October 17, 2023.
