'Prepared to do violence': Another Oaf Creeper leader jailed pending Capitol riot trial

A federal judge denied a request to release the alleged Florida leader of the paramilitary group Oath Keepers pending trial, claiming that Kelly Meggs traveled to Washington along with his wife and eight other accused co-conspirators "prepared to do violence" when rioters stormed the Capitol.

U.S. District Judge Amit Mehta said Friday that there was ample evidence to support that Meggs planned, led, financed and recruited others to join the Jan. 6 show of force, culminating in the deadly breach.

"Mr. Meggs is in a different class," Mehta said, indicating that the Oath Keeper leader posed a "danger" to the public if released.

Earlier in the day, Mehta ordered that Meggs' wife, Connie Meggs, be released to home confinement, concluding that the evidence against her did not appear as damning as the conduct of her husband and other members of the group.
