HARRISBURG, Pa. (AP) — A defense lawyer says a laptop stolen from the offices of House Speaker Nancy Pelosi during the U.S. Capitol attack hasn’t been recovered by investigators.

Public defender A.J. Kramer told a federal judge Tuesday that investigators didn’t find it in Riley Jean Williams’ car or home in Harrisburg.

The 22-year-old Williams is accused of helping steal the laptop, which a Pelosi aide has said was only used for presentations.

Prosecutors say there’s evidence Williams directed others to delete data after the attack. A judge in Washington restricted Williams’ internet access while she awaits trial.
