Trial Information

Tom endured a 7 week long jury trial in Washington, D.C. in Oct – Nov 2022, along with four other defendants. He was charged with the following five felonies:

  • Seditious Conspiracy
  • Conspiracy to Obstruct an Official Proceeding
  • Obstruction of an Official Proceeding and Aiding and Abetting
  • Conspiracy to Prevent an Officer from Discharging Any Duties
  • Tampering with Documents or Proceedings and Aiding and Abetting

Thankfully, Tom was found NOT GUILTY of all three Conspiracy charges. Inexplicably, he was found guilty of the two lesser charges.

While we are very grateful for the service and sacrifice of the members of the jury during a long and (in our opinion, unnecessarily complicated) 7+ week trial (UGH!), Tom is innocent of ALL charges.

THE SIMPLE TRUTH: On January 6th, 2021, Tom went to listen to President Trump speak at the White House Ellipse area with his wife (they were enjoying a husband and wife day together – just the two of them), then walked to the west side of the U.S. Capitol where they rested at the Peace Monument (not on Capitol grounds) for over an hour. After Congress was evacuated from the Capitol, Tom and his wife walked onto the inaugural balcony to take selfies (along with hundreds of peaceful Americans charged with NO crimes). After about 5 minutes on the balcony, peacefully taking photos and chanting “USA, USA, USA” – they LEFT. They left the Capitol area and left Washington, D.C. THAT’S IT. PERIOD. That’s all there really is to the story….

All the other ‘stuff’ Tom is alleged to have done or said is just that – extraneous stuff – which as been misconstrued, misrepresented, and has nothing to do with reality. It has only served to obfuscate the truth.


Please refer to Mr. David Fischer’s Opening Arguments, as well as his arguments in our Motion for Judgement of Acquittal.

Please join us in praying for Tom’s acquittal of these charges. He is an innocent man whose only actual “crime” appears to be that he was acquainted with two people who (unbeknownst to him until January 7th, 2021) went inside the U.S. Capitol on January 6th, 2021.
