A federal judge on Wednesday found D.C. corrections officials in contempt over the treatment of a Jan. 6 defendant and referred the matter to the Department of Justice for a civil rights investigation into whether other Capitol riot defendants are facing similar conditions.

U.S. District Judge Royce Lamberth said he would not issue contempt sanctions against D.C. Jail Warden Wanda Patten and Quincy Booth, the director of the D.C. Department of Corrections, after a long delay in turning over medical records related to a defendant’s injury that required surgery.

The article goes on to state the following:

Lamberth had found that the officials did not turn over records that were needed to approve the operation for defendant Christopher Worrell, a Proud Boys member charged with four felonies over the Jan. 6 riot.


According to The Washington Post, the Reagan appointee said Wednesday, “I find that the civil rights of the defendant have been abused. I don’t know if it’s because he’s a January 6th defendant or not, but I find this matter should be referred to the attorney general of the United States for a civil rights investigation into whether the D.C. Department of Corrections is violating the civil rights of January 6th defendants … in this and maybe other cases.”

The report adds that the order is likely to affect other defendants, who remain incarcerated after being denied bond.

Worrell has non-Hodgkins lymphoma, and tested positive for Covid-19 while he was incarcerated. He also broke his hand while in jail and was recommended to have surgery.

According to Worrell’s lawyer, correction officers simply offered Tylenol, noting the failure was “more than just inept and bureaucratic jostling of papers.”

  1. Proof that illegals and BLM get better treatment than any other American. A broken hand and Cancer ? No treatment ?! This is horrible ! Uncalled for !

  2. From my understanding NONE of Nazi Piglosi’s “So called Insurrectionists” were armed, yet through her actions is holding them more as Political Prisoners than “innocent as proven guilty in a court of law”

    Term limits would relieve the corruption in DC but Congress nor Senate will vote for it or allow it to pass.

    The Insurrection would never have happened and the integrity of elections would not be in question if it weren’t for DC corruption.

    Personally I hope and pray that Nazi Piglosi’s “laptop” is turned over not to her but to someone who will finally expose her as the Mastermind behind DC’s and California’s corruption.

  3. I don’t see any of the capitol police in jail. The capitol police were letting everyone in. Then they were firing gas at peaceful people. Ashley Babbitt wasn’t the only person to get murdered that day. FBI insurrection. The real insurrection was 3 November. There is a whole lot of video being hidden from the public. Thousands of hours worth. They don’t want it ever released because it proves I’m right. I have seen enough of it to know they are lying. Hell, even without being able to hear them at all I already know whatever they are saying is a lie. Biden, how does it feel to know that everyone in the world knows you are a pedophile, a traitor, a human trafficker, and last but not least, Hunter Biden’s Father???

  4. So prisoners are given tax payer paid gender surgery. But prisoners from Jan 6 are disallowed a speedy trial ,due process and bond. And medical care. Cancer causes death when it is not treated. There was no excuse for either disallowing cancer treatment or not setting his hand… prison guards are a bunch of scumbags… I’ll take it back… the Capitol Police guards are a bunch of scumbags
