The hearing for a Cleveland, Tennessee, man charged in the Jan. 6, 2021, breach at the U.S. Capitol was reset Wednesday after the judge in the case was told an error had been made that caused the accused man not to be able to appear.

In April, Joseph Lino “Jose” Padilla, 41, was set for a hearing 11 a.m. Wednesday via teleconference in Washington, D.C., but when District Judge John D. Bates called the case, court officials said they were still waiting on Padilla to arrive from jail. And then there was some bad news.

A court official, who did not identify herself, said her supervisor just let her know she dropped the ball on this case and did not schedule Mr. Padilla with the D.C. jail.

Bates said the case would have to be rescheduled because Padilla was not present due to the error.

Another court official told Bates that Padilla’s lawyer, Michael Cronkright, had communicated with him Tuesday and again Wednesday about the matter and seemed to want another 60 days for a status hearing.

Bates reset the status hearing for Aug. 10 at 12:15 p.m.

Padilla has remained in federal custody there since his arrest Feb. 23, 2021, and pleaded not guilty in the case March 30, 2021, court records show.

Fishing without a license in Tennessee will be allowed for one day during the state’s upcoming free fishing day.

The Tennessee Wildlife Resources Agency says anyone may fish for free without a license in Tennessee’s public waters on Saturday.

The agency said it offers the annual free fishing day in hopes of increasing interest in the recreational activity.

In an effort to attract more young people to fishing, children ages 15 and younger may fish without a license from Saturday through June 17.

The free fishing offer applies to Tennessee’s public waters, lakes operated by the wildlife agency, and state park facilities.
