Sentencing Announced for January 6 Rioter Who Took Gun Into Capitol

Guy Reffitt, who brought a gun to the US Capitol during the January 6, 2021, riot and threatened House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, was sentenced by a federal judge on Monday to more than seven years in prison, the longest sentencing yet for a January 6-related incident.

“Mr. Reffitt’s reluctance to admit early that his behavior is illegal is concerning,” District Judge Dabney Friedrich said before handing down the sentence. “And I want to be very clear … under no legitimate definition of the term ‘patriot’ (does) Mr. Reffitt’s behavior on and around January 6 fit the term. It is the antithesis of the word.”

After the sentencing, Guy Reffitt's daughters said that if their dad gets over seven years, then Trump should get life in prison.
