DC v Class – Docket – Dismissed

Rodney Class’s DC Court case which was dismissed and refiled in Federal Court. Class was arrested and brought before this court for a bond hearing. His federal charges were two counts. The first one was a title 40  section 5104(e)(1) charge of possessing a firearm on Capitol grounds, the other charge involved 22 DC Code 4504 “Carrying a pistol outside home, place or business”
