Kelly Meggs sentenced to 12 yearsA federal judge on Thursday sentenced a Dunnellon man to 12 years in prison for seditious conspiracy in connection with the Jan. 6, 2021, attack on the U.S. Capitol.

Kelly Meggs and his attorney pleaded for leniency before the sentence was handed down, saying he was not on the Capitol grounds to cause violence, and he was just someone who got carried away in the events of the day.

Meggs, who was the leader of the Florida chapter of the militia group Oath Keepers, was convicted by a jury in November, along with Oath Keepers founder Stewart Rhodes.

In 2022, Meggs told News 6′s Erik Sandoval that he and wife Connie traveled with others from Central Florida to Washington, DC, to provide security details for rallies around former President Donald Trump, who held a rally on Jan. 6.

Meggs said after the rally, he and others just found themselves sitting on the steps of the Capitol.
