Via NPR:

Dominic Pezzola, a member of the Proud Boys who became one of the recognizable faces of the Jan. 6 riot at the U.S. Capitol more than two years ago, was sentenced to 10 years in federal prison.

On Friday, Judge Kelly called the events of Jan. 6 at the U.S. Capitol “a national disgrace and that Pezzola’s actions that day “warrant significant deterrence.”

In his plea for leniency to the court, Pezzola said he had given up politics, yet as he was being escorted out of the courtroom he shouted, “Trump won!”


Prosecutors had asked for 20 years, so Pezzola got off relatively easy. Now he can spend the next decade yelling about Trump’s “win” from behind bars.

As you might recall, gay-for-pay white supremacist “Sergeant” Steven Miles was also charged with destroying government property on January 6th, although it’s not clear if he smashed the same window as Pezzola (photos below). Miles’ plea agreement hearing is scheduled for later this month.
