Alhambra Resident and Brother Agree to Plead Guilty to Participation in Capitol Riot
Two Los Angeles County brothers have agreed to plead guilty to crimes stemming from the Jan. 6 assault on the Capitol by Donald Trump supporters, court records obtained today show.
Kevin Cordon, 33, of Alhambra and Sean Cordon, 35, of Los Angeles both signed plea agreements earlier this month, according to records filed Friday in federal court for the District of Columbia.
The brothers were charged with violent entry and disorderly conduct on Capitol grounds and other crimes stemming from the assault. Both are expected to formally plead guilty in November.
The day after the Jan. 6 riot at the U.S. Capitol, an anonymous tipster from Finland alerted the FBI to a video on a Finnish newspaper's website that apparently showed the brothers at the scene of the riot.
The mob broke into the building in an attempt to stop Congress from certifying Joe Biden's victory in the presidential election.
The cases are being prosecuted in the District of Columbia.
In the seven months since Jan. 6, more than 570 individuals have been arrested in nearly all 50 states for crimes related to the breach of the U.S. Capitol, including over 170 people charged with assaulting or impeding law enforcement. The investigation remains ongoing.
