One of the reporters who works for the conspiracy site InfoWars has finally received his sentence.
Owen Shroyer will be spending the next 60 days in jail, reported NBC News.
Shroyer never even went inside the Capitol, which was part of his argument for a lenient sentence.
Send Him Away
We have seen this time and again in these sentencing hearings that judges are dropping the hammer on everyone.
Shroyer probably thought he caught a break when he drew Trump-appointed Judge Tim Kelly, but that was not the case.
In fact, Kelly had just handed out the longest sentence given to any January 6 defendant last week.
Proud Boys leader Enrique Tarrio was given 22 years, ironically, he was also not in the Capitol or even in DC on the day of the riot.
Kelly and the jury believed that Tarrio, while not there, put many of the plans in place that led to the rioting that day.
Shroyer, hoping for leniency, stated, "I was not a part of any larger plan for illegal activity or violence that day."
Prosecutors, however, went for the home run, arguing, “Shroyer helped create January 6.
"The government respectfully requests that this Court sentence him to 120 days of incarceration, 12 months of supervised release, 60 hours of community service, and $500 in restitution.
"In the months prior to January 6, Shroyer spread election disinformation paired with violent rhetoric to hundreds of thousands, if not millions, of viewers."
Shroyer's attorneys stated, "Mr. Shroyer, and every person capable of speaking in the United States, has a right to utter the speech Mr. Shroyer used. That the Government would suggest otherwise is a frightening commentary on our times.
"The Government’s sentencing memorandum is a shocking effort to criminalize dissent and warrants a stiff rebuke from this Court. Mr. Shroyer has every right to believe, and to assert to this very day, that the 2020 election was stolen."
There is no more free speech in this country, so get used to these types of sentences, including from Trump judges.
