‘Political Prisoners’: Jan. 6 Defendant Facing Two Years of Pretrial Detention Speaks Out
A man accused of committing crimes on Jan. 6, 2021, is speaking out about the prospect of being held in prison for two years before he goes on trial.
Jake Lang was arrested 10 days after the breach of the U.S. Capitol and has been held since.
His trial is not scheduled to start until 2023.
“There’s no right to a speedy trial anymore in America,” Lang told NTD’s “Capitol Report” from the Alexandria Detention Center in Virginia, the latest prison in which he’s being held.
“There’s no right to religious services in prison, you can’t your hair cut—the list goes on and on and on. They’re using COVID as this blinder to just absolutely desecrate the Bill of Rights and we don’t really have any rights in prison anymore.”
