WASHINGTON, D.C. (KOSA) – Capitol rioter Jenny Cudd has been hit with five new criminal charges.

In a newly unsealed grand jury indictment, prosecutors charged the Midlander with corruptly obstructing an official proceeding of Congress; entering and remaining in a restricted building; committing disorderly or disruptive conduct in a restricted building; committing disorderly conduct in a Capitol building; and parading, demonstrating, or picketing in a Capitol building.

Cudd openly bragged about storming the Capitol on January 6 on her Facebook page. She told CBS7 that she’d gladly do it again.

One of the conditions of her not serving any jail time right now is that she stay away from Washington except for anything dealing with her court case.

Cudd was originally charged with two misdemeanors. According to the criminal docket, at least one of these 5 charges are a felony. It is not yet clear which of those 5 charges would be categorized as a felony.

She also asked a judge to approve her going to a trip to Riviera Maya, Mexico, this month with her staff from Becky’s Flowers. She says it was planned before the riot. She has not been granted permission to go on that trip as of today.
