US Capitol Riot Participant Gets 8-Month Sentence
VOA says a Tampa, Florida, man who participated in the January 6 U.S. Capitol riot will spend eight months in prison after he was sentenced for a felony charge stemming from the incident.
Prosecutors had sought an 18-month sentence for 38-year-old Paul Allard Hodgkins.
Hodgkins, a supporter of former President Donald Trump, made his way into the Senate chamber as President Joe Biden’s election win was being certified.
Hodgkins was never accused of assault or property damage but pleaded guilty last month to obstructing an official proceeding.
