A little good news for once

https://www.nbcnews.com/news/us-news/capitol-rioter-idaho-gets-4-years-attacking-police-pipe-rcna18827

Duke Edward Wilson, 68, of Nampa, Idaho, was part of the insurrection. During it, he attacked a cop with a blunt object (either a pole or a pipe, there are reports of both) and helped try to take a shield from a police officer.

US District Judge Royce Lamberth threw the book at him on March 4. He was sentenced to 51 months in federal prison, the maximum he could have been.

Depending on his health when he goes in, he may not live to the end of his term.
