Man who brought gun to Capitol on Jan. 6 gets 7 years in prison, judge rejects 'terrorism' penalties

Guy Reffitt, a right-wing militia recruiter who brought a gun to the U.S. Capitol on Jan. 6, has received a 7-year prison sentence, the longest term yet of anyone sentenced for their part in the riot.

Reffitt, a senior member of the Three Percenters militia, was the first of those charged to opt to go to trial instead of taking a plea agreement, CNN reported.

A jury found him guilty of five felonies committed during the riot, including bringing a firearm to the Capitol and interfering with an official proceeding. He did not enter the building.
