Man from Savannah confesses his involvement in January 6 riot

Dominic Box Confesses Involvement in Capitol Insurrection

A Savannah man, facing charges for his alleged role in the January 6 insurrection, has confessed to his involvement in the attack in a recent court filing. Prosecutors and Box’s attorney have requested a stipulated trial instead of a jury trial to expedite proceedings while still allowing Box the right to appeal, which the judge has approved.

Admission of Guilt

Within the filing, Box acknowledges his participation in a group that pushed through Capitol police officers, disregarding orders and even holding a door open to the Capitol building while urging for more people to join. He admits to entering the building multiple times despite being aware of the prohibition.

Legal Charges

Box is facing seven charges, including obstruction of an official proceeding, civil disorder, and entering restricted buildings. His legal team plans to contest the obstruction charge, arguing that it lacks specificity and should be dismissed.

Social Media Presence

The court filing features images from surveillance footage and Box’s own Facebook live stream on the day of the insurrection. Prosecutors have highlighted his social media posts leading up to the attack, where he expressed excitement about the event.

Future Prospects

Prosecutors allege that Box had ambitions of becoming a prominent social media influencer, journalist, and political commentator. A judge is scheduled to make a decision on his case in mid-June.

Fundraising Efforts

A fundraiser has been initiated for Box, emphasizing his perceived predicament and asserting that he did not engage in violent or destructive behavior during the insurrection. Over $4,000 has been raised to support him.
