A woman from Minnesota has pleaded guilty to a single felony charge in connection with her role in the January 6, 2021, insurrection.

Victoria Charity White, aged 41 and residing in Rochester, was among the group of supporters of then-President Donald Trump who forcefully entered the U.S. Capitol grounds, resulting in a disruption of the certification process for the 2020 presidential election results, where Trump had been defeated.

White has admitted guilt to the charges of “civil disorder and aiding and abetting.” After leaving the federal court in Washington D.C., White, represented by a federal public defender, chose not to provide any comments to the Star Tribune. Her sentencing is scheduled for November.

Since the case commenced in 2021, White has been represented by various attorneys. Court documents indicate that she terminated some legal representation via text messages and turned down a plea offer in February. Prior to her most recent court appearance, White posted on social media last week: “I took the plea NO going back this time. If you only knew what these 2yrs have been like.”

Prosecutors had earlier alleged in a court filing that White, after traveling from Minnesota to Washington D.C., actively participated in the events of January 6 by “joining a group of individuals who marched to the Capitol, breached restricted Capitol grounds, and forcibly entered the Lower West Terrace tunnel.”
