Alan Hostetter was found guilty in July on charges of conspiracy to obstruct an official proceeding, obstruction of an official proceeding, entering or remaining on restricted grounds with a deadly or dangerous weapon and disorderly or disruptive conduct on restricted grounds with a deadly or dangerous weapon.

He represented himself during a bench trial before Judge Royce Lamberth, a Ronald Reagan appointee who sentenced Hostetter to 135 months on Thursday.


Damn those Liberal Reagan Appointee Judged!

He won't get out alive. Cops/Ex Cops don't do well in jail.

Big mistake in representing himself. Being a clueless moron in doing so likely doubled his sentence. I bet he went to the sov cit playbook, judges hate sovereign citizens.

Like GOP presidential candidate Vivek Ramaswamy and many far-right members of Congress, Hostetter has spread conspiracy theories about the attack on Jan. 6, 2021. Ramaswamy said, without evidence, during the Republican debate Wednesday night that Jan. 6 "now does look like it was an inside job," while Hostetter said during his trial that he believed "that the entire thing was staged."

Of course it was "staged". By Trumpy and his insurrectionist minions. That's why they were indicted and also facing charges in federal court.

Don't do the crime if you can't face the time. Have fun in prison Hostetter. Trumpy will either pardon you soon or join you. If you can survive for a year in there.

Obviously a founding member of ANTIFA, or maybe an FBI plant.
