The Cleveland, Tennessee, man charged on a 12-count indictment in the Jan. 6, 2021, breach of the U.S. Capitol will appear in U.S. District Court on Wednesday in Washington, D.C., for a status hearing on his case.

Joseph Lino "Jose" Padilla, 41, is scheduled to appear via teleconference Wednesday in court in the nation's capital. Padilla has remained in federal custody since his arrest Feb. 23, 2021.

The hearing is for District Judge John D. Bates to be updated on the status of discovery in the case after Michael Cronkright, Padilla's attorney, complained during the last hearing in January that prosecutors hadn't satisfactorily provided the government's case documents to Padilla.
