The attorney for Capitol protester Christopher Worrell has filed another emergency motion with the D.C. Circuit Court of Appeals seeking the release of his client, who has cancer, after he contracted COVID-19 in the jail where he is being detained.
Worrell has been held for over two months after firing pepper spray during the chaos on January 6, which he says was aimed at people who he believed to be Antifa that were targeting police.
Worrell has been denied bail since March 12 — and has been shipped around from Florida, to Oklahoma, to Virginia, and now finally DC. He has been subjected to horrific conditions including a lack of water for sometimes up to seven hours and contracted COVID on top of his non-Hodgkin’s Lymphoma cancer.
The proud and patriotic American is now severely at risk of dying from COVID or metastasizing cancer advancing while being denied bail.
On Wednesday, Worrell’s lawyer John Pierce filed a second Emergency Motion for Reconsideration of Order of Detention/Reopening Detention Hearing Due to Changed Circumstances after the first one was denied by another judge.

The motion continues on to say that “COVID, combined with the lack of treatment for his cancer, has caused him severe psychological and emotional distress. Mr. Worrell is currently in fear for his life and not sure if he will live to see his son grow up, his wife on the outside, or even live to see his own trial.”
His doctor, Dr. Bino Rucker, M.D., signed an affidavit that was included with the motion saying that “[c]ontinuing confinement at the federal detention center presents a substantial risk of serious infection to Mr. Worrell and his transfer to home confinement would significantly decrease the risk to his health in connection with the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic.”
The jail has been denying Worrell the medications prescribed by Dr. Rucker.
“Mr. Worrell has suffered aggravating symptoms of his cancer, including lymphomas of the skin on
