A New York court has denied bail to Jeffrey Sabol – a Capitol insurrectionist who admitted assaulting an officer during the siege.
US Magistrate Judge Andrew Krause, based in White Plains, New York, said during an electronic hearing that he found the alleged actions by Sabol beyond the pale and it is troubling to a degree that is really shocking.
The Capitol insurrectionist was denied bail after it was uncovered that he tried to flee to Switzerland a day after the siege, and also attempted suicide.
Sabol was part of a group of people dragging a Capitol officer down the steps of a building at the Capitol complex, the officer was repeatedly assaulted by a number of people.
Judge Krause said the allegations against Sabol were very disturbing, deeply troubling and that he needed to remain behind bars as a danger to the community and a risk to flee.
“What we see is Mr. Sabol, part of a group of people dragging a law enforcement officer down the steps of a building at the Capitol, where that officer has been repeatedly assaulted by a number of people, apparently including Mr. Sabol,” Krause said.
