January 20, 2017, was a day of chaos just blocks away from the Presidential Inauguration.

It ended with over 200 people arrested and charged with rioting.

On Friday, many of those with serious charges stood before a judge in D.C. and now prosecutors are faxing a challenge of their own.

ABC7 News' D.C. Bureau Chief Sam Ford was at the courthouse today in the video above.
