Jennifer Ruth Parks

On January 17, 2021, Jenniffer Parks was located and voluntarily interviewed. According to
Parks, she attended the rally in Washington D.C. on January 6, 2021. PARKS believed she was
attending a peaceful rally in support of President Donald Trump. Parks, along with Esther
Schwemmer, entered the U.S. Capitol for “thirty minutes to one hour” after the
doors were broken. PARKS entered the Capitol Building through the front lower door with no
stairs. PARKS proceeded up a round staircase to the second floor and observed groups of people
praying and singing.  She attempted to exit the Capitol Building through the front door and was told by a police officer not to exit there. She was then was directed by another police officer to leave down a
hallway, and she exited the building at that time.

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