The man who allegedly attempted to kill Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh has been indicted for attempted murder, the Department of Justice (DOJ) announced on Wednesday

“[O]n June 8, 2022, Roske intended to kill an Associate Justice of the Supreme Court,” the DOJ said in a press release. “Court documents alleges that Roske traveled from California to Maryland, intending to kill the Supreme Court Justice, arriving at the residence of a current Justice of the Supreme Court in the early morning hours of June 8, 2022.”

“The indictment includes a forfeiture allegation seeking the forfeiture of a firearm, two magazines loaded with 10 rounds each of 9mm ammunition; 17 rounds of ammunition contained in a plastic bag, a black speed loader, and additional items allegedly intended to be used in the commission of the crime,” the DOJ added.

Last week, Roske was arrested outside Justice Kavanaugh’s home with a pistol and other weapons. He was subsequently charged with “Attempts to kidnap or murder, or threatens to assault, kidnap or murder a United States Judge, to wit: a current Justice of the United States Supreme Court.”

Roske was planning on killing Kavanaugh and then committing suicide, according to FBI special agent Ian Montijo.

“Roske then told the detective that he was upset about the leak of a recent Supreme Court draft decision regarding the right to abortion as well as the recent school shooting in Uvalde, Texas,” Montijo wrote in the criminal complaint. “Roske indicated that the Justice that he intended to kill would side with Second Amendment decisions that would loosen gun control laws.”

“Roske stated that he began thinking about how to give his life a purpose and decided that he would kill the Supreme Court Justice after finding the Justice’s Montgomery County address on the Internet. Roske further indicated that he had purchased the Glock pistol and the other items for the purpose of breaking into the Justice’s residence and killing the Justice as well as himself,” Montijo added.

Roske faces a maximum sentence of life in federal prison if convicted for attempting to assassinate a Supreme Court Justice.
