The “QAnon Shaman” — known for storming the US Capitol in a horned coyote-fur headdress and American-flag paint — pleaded guilty to an obstruction charge in federal court Friday and will serve at least 3 1/2 years in prison, according to a report.
Jacob Chansley, 34, of Phoenix, copped to a count of obstruction of an official proceeding, one of six charges he faced for his role in the US Capitol riot on Jan.6, according to CBS News.
Under federal guidelines, he’s expected to be sentenced to 3 1/2 to a little over four years behind bars minus the eight months of time he’s already served, the outlet reported. He has also agreed to pay $2,000 in restitution.
Chansley — who became the face of the riot after wild photos of him clutching a spear as he breached the Senate Chamber were widely circulated — was initially hit with charges including civil disorder, violent entry and disorderly conduct. Previously, he faced up to 28 years behind bars.
His lawyer, Al Watkins, says Chansley is “non-violent, peaceful and possessed genuine mental health issues” at the time of the conspiracy-theory-fueled building breach. (Read more from “Capitol Protest: ‘Qanon Shaman’ Will Likely Serve Over 3 Years” HERE)
