A Capitol rioter who created his own militia, raised funds, and worked to recruit others to join him in Washington, DC, on January 6, 2021, was sentenced on Wednesday to 52 months behind bars for assaulting a police officer during the attack.

Before handing down his sentence, US District Judge Randolph Moss said Lucas Denney “came looking for a fight” on January 6, citing messages from Denney where he planned for the event, discussed purchasing pepper spray and armor for his trip to DC, and recruited one other person to join him.

Denney, the self-declared leader of the Patriot Boys of North Texas, pleaded guilty to the initial assault charge in March after the Justice Department failed to secure an indictment in the allotted time, thereby violating his right to a speedy trial.

During the attack, Denney attempted to pull barricades away from a line of police officers several times and later attempted to take a police officer’s baton. Denney also swung a pole made of PVC at a police officer but hit a photojournalist instead, according to a joint statement from the government and Denney’s attorney, William Shipley.

2. I wonder how much these Jan 6

insurrectionists' sentences are having an impact on their buddies' attitudes and actions. Are they deterred, strengthened or the same?

3. Having their guns taken away will be.

Federal felony conviction, no chance for restoration of gun rights.

10. Informative, thanks.

Mostly sentences with probation, home confinement, community service, and light fines. I did not scroll through them all.

11. The heavier sentences are more recent ones, I think.

I just discovered that by clicking on the "Entry Last Updated*" link in the upper right-hand corner, you can sort the sentenced cases chronologically by date of sentence, either ascending or descending by oldest or most recent.

Some of the very recent ones are also in the probation, etc., range, but many involve jail/prison time. Some are only X number of days, but many are in the months/years category.

I think a lot has to do with the severity of initial charges, whether a plea deal was reached, and so on. But the sentences now seem to be getting longer and harsher overall.

14. Depends on state.

16 states say you are disqualified from voting.
