United States justice this Wednesday (17) sentenced Jacob Chansley to 3 years and 5 months in prison for attacking the US Congress without horns and shirtless.
US prosecutors asked a US court to sentence Chansley, one of the extremists who attacked the US Capitol on January 6, to 51 months in prison – the equivalent of 4 years and 3 months.
Chansley came to be known as the “Qa’anan Sorcerer” (Qa’anan is a conspiracy movement).

He pleaded guilty to the act and settled in September. According to the public ministry, the extremist will have to pay a further three years’ parole and a fine of US$2,000 (about R$10,900).
In September, Chancellor pleaded guilty to trying to obstruct an official proceeding by attacking a US Congress building, along with thousands of others, in an attempt to prevent the legislature from authenticating President Joe Biden’s victory in the 2020 election. .
The judge in the case, Royce Lamberth, said he believed Chancellor tried to convince the court that he was “on the right track”.
The convict’s lawyers asked the judge to spare the time of his imprisonment. He appeared in court in a green jumpsuit and had shaved.
In prison, he was diagnosed with transient schizophrenia, bipolar disorder, depression and anxiety.
When he admitted his guilt, Chancellor said he was disappointed with former President Donald Trump, who did not grant him a pardon.
On January 6, four people were killed in the demolition of the Congress building. The police officer who was attacked died the next day. Around 140 policemen were injured.
