A Newburgh man imprisoned in Washington, D.C., on charges he assaulted police officers during the Jan. 6 riot at the U.S. Capitol has turned down an offer from federal prosecutors to plead guilty for a reduced sentence.
During a court appearance on Dec. 9, a prosecutor said Edward “Jake” Lang, 26, had been offered a sentence of up to about 6.5 years. If convicted at trial on all charges, he would face a sentence of up to nine years.
Lang’s next court appearance is scheduled for Jan. 18.
