Guilty plea hearing in Olathe Proud Boy’s Capitol riot case is moved to mid-October

A plea agreement hearing scheduled for Monday in the Capitol riot case of Olathe Proud Boy William Chrestman has been moved to mid-October.

Chrestman is charged with multiple felonies in the Jan. 6 attack, including threatening to assault a federal officer and carrying an ax handle inside the Capitol. He was to plead guilty Monday afternoon in U.S. District Court for the District of Columbia.

But shortly before the hearing was to take place, an entry on the court docket said it had been rescheduled to Oct. 16. No explanation was given for the continuance.

The 49-year-old Army veteran and former sheet metal worker, who prosecutors allege was a key player in the attack, has been held without bond since his arrest in February 2021. He could be seen on numerous videos alongside other Proud Boys on Jan. 6, 2021, dressed in tactical gear, leading chants and at one point using the ax handle to obstruct metal barriers that had been deployed to prevent the mob from advancing further into the Capitol.
