A Buford man who pleaded guilty to a charge related to the Jan. 6, 2021, riots at the U.S. Capitol building is awaiting sentencing.
Verden Andrew Nalley is scheduled to be sentenced Thursday, March 10, after he pleaded guilty to a misdemeanor charge that he illegally entered the Capitol. He faces up to six months in prison and a fine between $500 to $9,500.
Following the Capitol riots, Nalley posted about his part in the events.
“The capital (sic) take over was planned I was there,” a post by Nalley on social media site MeWe.com read. “We took it with no weapons and we will be back with guns in two weeks if that’s not fixed.”
Nalley was charged as a co-defendant with south Georgia attorney William McCall Calhoun Jr.
“We physically took control of the Capitol Building in a hand to hand hostile takeover,” Calhoun wrote, according to an FBI affidavit. “I was there and saw it all. My buddy Andy Nalley and I were in the first two hundred to rush up the steps and inside after the Vanguard had clashed hard with the police and made them retreat.”
Nalley was granted bond after pleading guilty.
