Lang Expected To Be Transferred To DC This Weekend In Connection With Capitol Riots
Updated: Jan 7, 2022
Edward Jacob Lang, the 25-year-old Narrowsburg native facing multiple federal charges in connection with his participation in the January 6 riots at the U.S. Capitol, is expected this weekend to be transferred to a prison facility in Washington, D.C., according to his attorney Steven A. Metcalf, II who spoke briefly with The SullivanTimes today.
Lang was initially held at the Metropolitan Correctional Facility in Lower Manhattan after his arrest in Newburgh on January 16 but Metcalf told The SullivanTimes that Lang was currently being held at the Orange County jail in Goshen.
Metcalf said that Lang could appear in U.S. District Court for the District of Columbia as early as this Monday - but it's possible that could be delayed by a few more days.
Lang had his first court appearance on January 19 before U.S. Magistrate Court Judge Andrew E. Krause at the U.S. District Court for the Southern District in White Plains.
