Last month, Robertson rejected a plea deal proposed by the government. Other deals were extended to Elliston’s Fracker and Jeremy Daniel Groseclose, who can be seen in videos blocking Capitol Police as they attempted to close a security fence. None of the men have so far agreed to the deals, details of which have not been released.
On Monday, the duty counsel for Groseclose asked to be allowed to withdraw from the case.
