Judge sentences Jan. 6 defendant who breached Pelosi’s office to 36 months in prison
[www.politico.com]

A Jan. 6 defendant who surged with the mob into Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s office and helped strategize ways for the mob to overcome police resistance was sentenced Thursday to 36 months in prison, ending one of the earliest and most unusual sagas to stem from the Capitol attack.

Attorneys for Riley Williams — a devotee of white nationalist Nick Fuentes who is 5 feet, 4 inches tall and was 22 at the time of the attack — repeatedly urged U.S. District Judge Amy Berman Jackson to treat her like an immature child who couldn’t be responsible for her actions. But Jackson sharply rejected that effort, noting that Williams repeatedly and intentionally took steps to breach police lines and marshaled the mob to resist even further.

“She was not just a little waif blowing in the wind,” Jackson said, comparing Williams’ role in the mob to a “coxswain on a crew team.”

Jackson’s sentence was the close of one of the earliest sagas to emerge after the Jan. 6 attack. Williams was one of the first felony defendants charged, and she was suspected at the time of stealing Nancy Pelosi’s laptop, in part because she told friends that she did.

Whine, whine, whine, not my fault. Just like the man she follows.

No so far out.

Purely subjective of course, but in my experience, few Americans seem to be emotionally stable prior to age 26 or so, and many are nuts on the order of hormonal teenagers well into their 30s.

Some never grow up and remain immature well into their older years. But they need to make a cutoff at some point for legal liability.

I wonder if the sentences are getting longer as it's taken time to get those to trial who wouldn't take a deal? I read a while ago about at least one of the judges who has had a number of these cases and was aware of people sounding very repentant in court and then later singing a different tune on social media. I'd imagine that might impact a sentence for future defendants.

I thought they did. It was 21 until Vietnam turned it into 18.

Well, depending on the color of your skin, you can be charged (and convicted) of murder at 11 years of age:

Yeah, that general idea is one of the first things I thought of. I thought of the Central Park Five. The oldest of the Central Park five was 16 years old and two of them were 14 years old. (Not to mention that they were actually innocent). Yet Trump did this:




And there is this:
