A Capitol rioter was sentenced to 8 months in prison on Monday, the first felony sentence imposed on a participant in the attack on Jan. 6. Paul Allard Hodgkins had pleaded guilty to one count of obstruction of an official proceeding, which carries a maximum possible sentence of 20 years in prison.
In comments to the court Monday, Hodgkins apologized for his participation in the mob that stormed the Capitol and said he now recognizes President Biden as the rightful president.
