  • Updated

WASHINGTON (AP) — President Joe Biden declared Wednesday night that “America is rising anew” as he called for an expansion of federal programs to drive the economy past the pandemic and broadly extend the social safety net on a scale not seen in decades.

Charles Donohoe, Proud Boys leader who lives in Kernersville, was at a hearing to determine if he stays in federal custody. Prosecutors portray him as a pivotal and influential leader who helped get hundreds of people from around the country to come to Washington, D.C. to storm the U.S. Capitol on Jan. 6. But his attorney said Donohoe wasn't involved in the planning and only decided at the last minute to go to Washington, D.C. A judge will decide on Thursday whether to keep Donohoe in federal custody. 

Attorney for Charles Donohoe, a Kernersville resident facing charges from Jan. 6 Capitol riot, says her client poses no flight risk and should be released from prison. She said prosecutors have no evidence that Donohoe played a pivotal part in the Capitol riot. She also describes Donohoe as a family man who loves law-enforcement and his country.
