Former Rocky Mount officers in connection with US Capitol riot offered plea deal

Roanoke Valley News

(WFXR) — Two former Rocky Mount police officers — who are facing charges in connection with the Capitol riots earlier this year — were each given a plea deal.

According to the court documents, the plea deals for Thomas Robertson and Jacob Fracker are set to expire on Aug. 11.

A status hearing was set for both Robertson and Fracker on Aug. 3, but the U.S. is looking to push that back. Their status hearing could be Aug. 16, 17, or 18.

It’s not clear what was recommended in the plea deal, but the offers will be presented to Roberston and Fracker during their status hearing.

Fracker is currently out on pre-trial release and Robertson is in custody for violating the terms of his release.
