(Cedar Rapids, IA) -- A Cedar Rapids, Iowa man will stand trial for the charges against him from the January 6th attack on the U.S. Capitol.

36-year-old Leo Kelly's trial starts Jan. 17th, 2023 in Washington, D.C., Kelly is pleading not guilty to all seven charges.

The most serious charge is obstruction of an official proceeding.

Kelly was arrested in Iowa 12 days after the attack.

Kelly said he followed a crowd into the U.S. Senate chamber, but he wasn't armed and didn't vandalize anything.

A judge recently denied a motion to move another Iowan's trial for his part in the January 6th Capitol attack. Des Moines resident Doug Jensen's trial will be held the week of September 19th, but a specific start date isn't certain yet.
