Livingston County woman indicted for Capitol Riot

DANSVILLE, N.Y. (WHEC) — A Livingston County woman is the latest Greater Rochester area defendant facing federal charges for the Jan. 6 riot at the U.S. Capitol.
Katharine Morrison was indicted last month on 6 federal counts.
The paperwork has been unsealed on a search of her home in Dansville.
News10NBC Anchor and Reporter Charles Molineaux spoke with Katie MorrisonWednesday evening. She said her lawyer is instructing her not to talk about her case.
The results of that search were filed Wednesday.
The Federal Bureau of Investigation’s search warrant includes pictures of her inside the capitol, wearing a distinctive grey-green helmet with a sticker on top, and, very importantly, carrying her cell phone.
The search itself actually happened one month ago on the morning of Feb. 24.
The latest indictment against Morrison came down from a federal grand jury at the beginning of last month.
The charges against her include obstruction of an official proceeding, meaning trying to disrupt Congress’s certification of the 2020 presidential election.
According to the documents, the search turned up her jacket, her boots, and multiple iPhones, tablets and laptops which investigators say could have information about where she went, what she did and pictures she took.
The search warrant specifies that agents would be looking for evidence of her involvement in the Jan. 6 riot, evidence of a conspiracy to break into the capital, as well as evidence of the state of mind of the people involved.
