The U.S. Marshals announced that they had charged five individuals for causing damage to the Foley Federal Building and U.S. Courthouse in Las Vegas, Nevada. The damage occurred on May 30, 2020.
U.S. Attorney Trutanich said “agitators at the May 30 protest in downtown Las Vegas allegedly damaged a federal courthouse and threatened to attack a law enforcement officer. These cases should reinforce that our office will protect lawful First Amendment activity — while also upholding the rule of law by prosecuting those who would incite and escalate violence, vandalism, and destruction.”
