Feds seek 15 year sentence

Federal prosecutors are asking that Jan. 6 rioter Guy Reffitt, who was the first Jan. 6 defendant to go to trial earlier this year, receive a 15-year prison sentence, according to a court filing on Friday.

Why it matters: If accepted by the presiding judge, Reffitt's sentence would be the longest given to a Capitol rioter so far.

  • Reffitt's prison sentence would be nearly triple the more than five-year prison term handed down to Capitol rioter Robert Palmer, who is currently serving the longest sentence given to date.

The big picture: Reffitt carried a gun onto Capitol grounds and interfered with the police line during the riot. He also threatened to harm his son and daughter when he returned to Texas if they turned him in to the FBI.
