Attorney: NJ gym owner to plead guilty in Capitol breach
A Sussex County man is set to plead guilty to his role in the Jan. 6 breach of the United States Capitol, according to his defense attorney.
An attorney representing Scott Fairlamb says his client will plead guilty to assaulting an officer and obstructing an official proceeding.
An affidavit filed in the case shows a photo of someone authorities identified as Fairlamb allegedly punching a police officer in the head.
Fairlamb is the first person from New Jersey to admit his part in the riot. He is the owner of a gym in Pompton Plains.
Fairlamb is expected to appear in court on Aug. 6.
