Klete Keller ‘Prepared to Go Forward’ with Capitol Insurrection Plea Agreement

Klete Keller is, according to his defense attorney, “prepared to go forward” with a plea agreement for his role in the Jan. 6 insurrection at the United States Capitol.

Keller had his latest court appearance on Wednesday, where he indicated his intention to enter a plea agreement with the government.

Sentencing, which is normally conducted at in-person hearings, could be delayed due to Keller not having a vaccination for COVID-19, necessitating additional safety measures. Keller was reportedly scolded by U.S. District Judge Richard J. Leon over his vaccination status.

The negotiation of a plea deal with the government was first reported in June at his last hearing, which included a 60-day continuance. An additional 30 days, from the originally schedule Aug. 4 date, was added on. The next date in his court case has not been determined, but that hearing is likely to include a reading of the plea agreement and setting the stage for sentencing.

Keller pled not guilty in February, when a federal grand jury upped the charges against him to seven counts, civil disorder, disorderly conduct in a restricted building and obstruction of an official proceeding. Keller was released on a personal recognizance bond.
