Ex-Monmouth County corrections officer, friend mull Jan. 6 plea deals

A former New Jersey corrections officer and a friend who were indicted for their role in the Jan. 6 Capitol riot are considering plea deals offered by the government.
Marissa Suarez and Patricia Todisco made a virtual court appearance on Tuesday in Washington.
Todisco's attorney says his client is close to accepting a deal and is in the process of working out details.
Suarez worked as a correctional officer in Monmouth County, but resigned after her arrest.
Both women were indicted on charges including obstructing an official proceeding and disorderly conduct.
Todisco also is charged with illegally entering an office of a member of Congress, allegedly that of Democratic Oregon Sen. Jeff Merkley.
