Report: Nine Of The Inauguration Day Rioters Face Up To 70 Years In Prison

The far left dopes who rioted in Washington, DC during Trump’s inauguration are learning a harsh lesson about life and law. Nine of them are facing up to 70 years in prison.

The Intercept reports:

WHEN TEXAS PHOTOJOURNALIST Alexei Wood goes to court in Washington, D.C., on November 15, he’ll be one of the first people to face charges stemming from protests around the inauguration of President Donald Trump. Wood and five others are being charged for their alleged involvement in what prosecutors are describing as a riot on the morning of January 20, hours before Trump was sworn in at on the Capitol steps. All nine defendants face up to 70 years in prison.

The case’s outcome could set a precedent that would affect all of the over 200 remaining defendants awaiting trial for the “J20″ protests who face the same strict maximum sentence.

“The government doesn’t like this kind of activity in its city,” said Wood’s lawyer, Brett Cohen.

The U.S. Attorney’s Office for the District of Columbia did not respond to requests for comment, but information gleaned from the April 27 indictment indicates the sort of tactics the government will use against the defendants, who will be tried in staggered groups of around eight beginning November 15.

By charging everyone together with conspiracy counts, the government seems intent on making an example of the J20 protesters. “They’re prosecuting us as a group,” Wood said.

This is the way it has to be. Do you think the far left will think twice about violent riots before doing this again? They’d be idiots not to.
