‘I just wanna die’: NC man battling COVID as sentencing looms for his role in Capitol riot

Federal prosecutors want a North Carolina man to serve a month in prison for his role in U.S. Capitol riot. First, James “Les” Little has to kick COVID-19. The former truck driver from Claremont began showing flu-like symptoms on Jan. 28, and tested positive for the virus shortly afterward, according to a court filing Friday from his federal public defender, Peter Adolf of Charlotte. Claremont is about 45 miles northwest of Charlotte, in Catawba County.

Little, who public records show to be in his early 50s, last received medical treatment on Thursday, his attorney wrote. He’s shared details of his health struggles on social media since late last month.

“Oh my god, y’all. I’ve never felt so bad in my life. I’m burning up,” Little said in a YouTube video he posted Thursday.
