Gary Wilson

Wilson entered the Capitol and followed the crowd to the Senate Gallery. Those around him allegedly assaulted police officers, but it doesn’t appear Wilson engaged in violence.

In a discussion with other co-defendants and police, he told police “We came all the way from our jobs to do your job and the freaking senators’ job.”

Please keep in mind that in the United States, every citizen charged with a crime is presumed innocent until proven guilty.
