A former Rocky Mount, Virginia police officer, Thomas Robertson was convicted by a jury. His codefendant, Jacob Fracker took a plea deal and testified for federal prosecutors. Thomas Robertson was found guilty on all six charges stemming from his activities on January 6th. His conviction came about after Jacob Fracker, his fellow officer and codefendant took a plea deal and testified for federal prosecutors stating that they “hoped to overturn the results of the election”.
Robertson’s charges included obstruction of an official proceeding, civil disorder, and entering a restricted building while carrying a large wooden stick (dangerous weapon).
Fracker told NBC that Robertson was a “father figure” and, “I felt like we had maybe been heard by whoever it was we needed to be heard by”.
