US offers plea deal to former Rocky Mount officers charged in connection to Capitol riot

We now know when we’ll learn if two former Rocky Mount officers will accept a plea deal in connection with the charges against them regarding the January 6 capitol riots.

Last week, the United States filed a motion revealing that both Thomas Robertson and Jacob Fracker have been presented with a plea offer that expires on August 11.

The motion did not reveal any details of what the offer entails.

Judge Christopher R. Cooper ordered Tuesday that a video hearing will be held on August 17 at 11:30 a.m.

The hearing will, “enable the parties to continue their discussions of a potential disposition of this matter short of trial,” according to Cooper’s order.
