Rioter who carried Pelosi’s podium sentenced. Adam Johnson received 75 days in prison.

Where: Washington DC

The Facts

On Friday, a Florida man who carried House Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s podium in the US Capitol during the January 6th riot was sentenced to 75 days in prison.

Adam Johnson was also ordered to pay a $5,000 fine and perform 200 hours of community service.

During Johnson’s sentencing, US District Court Judge Reggie B. Walton stated, “We’re on a dangerous slide in America,” adding that he made “a mockery” of the events.

In November, Johnson pleaded guilty to entering and remaining in a restricted building or grounds.

Under the plea agreement, prosecutors agreed to leave out charges relating to the theft of government property and violent entry on Capitol grounds.
