Bruno Joseph Cua Arrested is Capitol Riot
Bruno has been in federal custody since his arrest on Feb. 5 for his role in the attack on the nation’s Capitol, wrote a letter to US District Court Judge Randolph D. Moss Thursday, March 4th begging to be sent home while he’s waiting for his trial, the Atlanta Journal-Constitution reported.
Cua is the youngest of the more than 300 supporters of former President Donald Trump accused of the breach of the Capitol and, among Georgians charged, faces the most serious crimes. He is among just a handful of rioters who gained access to either the House or Senate chambers.
Prosecutors allege that Cua assaulted a federal officer while fighting his way to the Senate floor. He was photographed twirling a baton in multiple locations throughout the Capitol, joining the lawless mob that disrupted the counting of electoral college votes certifying the election of President Joe Biden.
The charge for obstructing an official proceeding before Congress is punishable by up to 20 years, according to Cua’s attorneys.
A federal judge in Atlanta denied the Cua bond on Feb. 12.
On Wednesday, Cua appeared at a hearing by video from the Grady County Jail in Chickasha, Okla., where he was transferred after weeks at Atlanta City Detention Center. Through his attorneys, Cua entered a not guilty plea.
Moss set a May 10 jury trial date but acknowledged that the date might be moved for various reasons, including the ongoing pandemic.
In a Feb. 26 defense motion arguing for Cua’s release, lawyers said that he was “an impressionable 18-year-old kid who was in the middle of finishing his online coursework to graduate from high school when he was arrested.”
Cua’s attorneys contend he didn’t come up with the inflammatory language he espoused online while fishing and building treehouses in Milton. Instead, his lawyers say, Cua was parroting what he saw online.
