Former Polk County Residents Scheduled for U.S. Capitol Attack Trials

On October 14, a federal court will commence the trials of three former Polk County residents accused of crimes associated with the January 6, 2021, U.S. Capitol attack.

Jonathan Pollock, Olivia Pollock, and Joseph Hutchinson III are facing multiple felony charges, including assaulting, resisting, or impeding police officers.

The siblings, Jonathan and Olivia Pollock, along with Hutchinson, who are former residents of the Kathleen area, will stand trial in the U.S. District Court for the District of Columbia.

Arrests and Indictments

Jonathan Pollock, who had been a fugitive for approximately 2½ years, was arrested by FBI agents on June 30, 2021. Olivia Pollock and Hutchinson, indicted by a grand jury, turned fugitives in March 2023 by disabling their GPS monitors days before their Washington trials.

Arrest and Captures

All three fugitives were captured on January 6 at a ranch in Groveland, southern Lake County, by FBI agents.

Legal Proceedings

Currently held without bond, the defendants have pleaded not guilty. The upcoming trial is expected to last two weeks. A pretrial conference is set for October 10.

Jonathan and Olivia Pollock have court-appointed attorneys, while Hutchinson is representing himself in court.


These individuals are part of a group of seven current and former Polk County residents facing charges or convictions related to the events of January 6.
