Buford man enters guilty plea to illegally entering Capitol on Jan. 6

By AccessWDUN staff

A Buford man entered a guilty plea Thursday to a charge that he illegally entered the U.S. Capitol during a breach of the federal building on Jan. 6, 2021. 

Verden Andrew Nalley, 50, could spend six months in prison and pay a fine of as much as $9,500 for his illegal entry into the Capitol, according to a report in the Atlanta Journal-Constitution. The newspaper report said he spent 30 minutes in the Capitol's rotunda and crypt. 

Nalley was arrested on Feb. 19, 2021 and booked into the Gwinnett County Jail. 

Nalley is one of 15 Georgians arrested for the riots on the Capitol grounds. He is the second Georgian this week to enter a guilty plea to charges connected to the incident. Kevin Douglas Creek pleaded guilty this week to assaulting two law enforcement outside the U.S. Capitol on Jan. 6. 

The AJC report said Nalley told U.S. District Court Judge Dabney L. Friedrich he was just ready to get the case behind him. He is scheduled to be sentenced on March 10, 2022. He remains free on bond at this time.
