Midland Woman Granted Permission to Vacation in Mexico


MIDLAND, TX -- A federal judge has granted Jenny Cudd's request to travel to Mexico on vacation. The Midland woman was arrested after entering the Capitol Building during the January 6th siege.

Last week Cudd's lawyer petitioned the court to allow her to travel to the Rivera Maya in Mexico with her employees for four days.

The motion stated the trip was a "work-related bonding retreat for employees and their spouses." Cudd argued the trip had been planned before the events of January 6th.

At the time her motion was filed, Cudd was charged with two misdemeanors:

  • Entering a restricted building or grounds
  • Violent entry or disorderly conduct.

Two days before the request was approved, Cudd was indicted on five federal charges by a grand jury, including a felony. 

The charges include: 

  • Obstructing an official proceeding of Congress
  • Being in a restricted building
  • Disorderly or disruptive conduct in a restricted area
  • Disorderly conduct in the U.S. Capitol
  • Parading or demonstrating inside the Capitol.

The request was ultimately approved by District Judge Trevor McFadden. Judge McFadden cited the fact that she did not have a previous criminal record and was not considered a danger to others or a flight risk as the reason the motion was approved.

According to Cudd's attorney, the federal prosecutor and pretrial services officer handling his client's case did not object to her traveling to another country.
