A few months ago, a “mental disease or defect” temporarily barred Oath Keeper attorney Kelly SoRelle from facing trial for charges related to the Jan. 6 attack on the U.S. Capitol, but now her mental competency has been restored after an evaluation by the Bureau of Prisons, a federal judge has found.

U.S. District Judge Amit Mehta made the ruling from federal court in Washington, D.C., in a paperless order posted to the docket on Feb. 9. He also ordered that she be released from custody as she awaits her trial on charges that she conspired to obstruct an official proceeding, obstructed an official proceeding, entered and remained in a restricted building or grounds, and obstructed justice by tampering with documents.

She is under orders not to have any contact with Oath Keepers or other members of the far-right organization.
