Portland, OR – Federal charges filed against a 26-year-old transgender antifa rioter arrested for assaulting law enforcement officers were recently dismissed in exchange for 30 hours of community service.
Beaverton resident Eva Warner, who is also known as Joshua Warner, was part of the riotous mob that set fire to the Portland Police Association (PPA) office on North Lombard Street and busted out the building’s windows on Aug. 8, 2020, FOX News reported.
The antifa rioters shoved dumpsters out into the street and used vehicles to block motorists.
The Portland Police Bureau (PPB) declared a riot and tried to disperse the crowd, at which point Warner began shining a high-powered laser into officers’ eyes, FOX News reported.
Warner went on the fight when police tried to apprehend her, resulting in her forceable arrest.
They found the laser pointer on her person after she was taken into custody.
Warner was charged with impeding, interfering with law enforcement officers engaged in official duties and obstructing, but was quickly released without bail, FOX News reported.
She went out and joined another riotous mob about a week later and was arrested on a second-degree criminal mischief charge.
Warner was again released without bail on that occasion.
Her third arrest took place about one week later, when she was charged with second-degree disorderly conduct and interfering with a peace officer during another riot, FOX News reported.
Warner was federally indicted on Sept. 2, 2020 in connection with the Aug. 8, 2020 riot.
She faced up to five years in prison for the felony civil disorder charge she was facing, FOX News reported.
A U.S. Magistrate Judge released her from custody on Sept. 3, 2020.
On Dec. 21, Acting U.S. Attorney for the District of Oregon Scott Erik Asphaug filed a motion to dismiss the charge against Warner because she had performed 30 hours of community service as required by a Deferred Resolution Agreement, The Washington Times reported.
U.S. District Court Judge Michael Simon dismissed the indictment with prejudice the following day, according to FOX News.
