On Wednesday, the US Court of Justice sentenced (17) Jacob Chansley, the man who invaded Congress with a hat with horns and without a shirt, to 3 years and 5 months in prison.

US prosecutors had asked the US court that Chansley, one of the extremists who overran the US Capitol on January 6, serve 51 months in prison – the equivalent of 4 years and 3 months.

Chansley became known as the “Shaman’s Law” (A Law is a Conspiracy Movement).

He pleaded guilty to the act and settled in September. According to the Public Ministry, the extremist will have to face another three years of parole and pay a fine of 2,000 US dollars (about 10,900 Brazilian reais).

In September, Chansley pleaded guilty to attempting to obstruct official action by storming the US Capitol, along with thousands of others, in an effort to prevent the legislature from certifying President Joe Biden’s 2020 election victory.

The case judge, Royce Lamberth, said he believed Chanceley had tried to convince the court that he was “on the right track”.

The convict’s lawyers asked the judge to deduct the time he spent in prison. He appeared before the court in a green suit, and had his hair shaved off.

He was diagnosed in prison with transient schizophrenia, bipolar disorder, depression and anxiety.

When he pleaded guilty, Chansley said he was disappointed in former President Donald Trump, who had not granted him a pardon.

Four people were killed in the storming of the Capitol on January 6th. A police officer who was attacked died the next day. About 140 police were wounded.
