Before Trial, Savannah Car Salesman Confesses to Participation in Jan. 6 Capitol Attack

Former Georgia Man Admits Involvement in Capitol Insurrection

Dominic Box, a former car salesman in Savannah, has admitted to his role in the January 6 insurrection at the U.S. Capitol. The attack, led by supporters of then-President Donald Trump, aimed to overturn Joe Biden’s victory in the 2020 election.

Legal Proceedings and Admission

Box filed a legal motion in which he confessed to the allegations in the indictment against him, including the serious charge of obstructing an official proceeding of Congress.

The motion, not a plea bargain but a request for a “stipulated trial,” was filed jointly with prosecutors. U.S. District Judge Colleen Kollar-Kotelly granted the motion for a trial without a jury, saving time and effort.

Events During the Insurrection

Box’s admission included pushing through officers at the U.S. Capitol and shouting phrases like “Don’t tread on us” and “There’s no talking!” He was part of the group that overwhelmed the Capitol officers.

Upcoming Trial and Judge’s Concerns

Kollar-Kotelly has scheduled Box’s stipulated bench trial for June 17 in Washington, D.C. She has previously expressed concerns about the state of democracy in the U.S. in relation to the events of January 6.

Potential Sentencing and Future Legal Actions

If found guilty, Box may receive a sentence reduction based on his acceptance of responsibility. He has also filed a motion seeking to dismiss his most serious charge, citing a pending Supreme Court case that could impact obstruction convictions for January 6 defendants.
