Prosecutors have dismissed charges that accused a Henrico County firefighter of rioting in Washington during President Donald Trump’s inauguration last year. Rosa Roncales, 32, was among roughly three dozen defendants whose charges were dismissed by prosecutors last week, said Bill Miller, a spokesman for the U.S. Attorney’s Office for the District of Columbia. Those were the last defendants, out of a group of more than 200 people charged, who still had cases pending in D.C. Superior Court in connection with the Inauguration Day incident. Roncales was arrested when officers rounded up suspected rioters on Jan. 20, 2017, according to a police report. At that time, Roncales was employed as a Henrico firefighter.
