‘QAnon Shaman’ sentenced to 41 months for role in US Capitol riot

Jacob Chansley pleaded guilty on Sept. 3 to one felony count of unlawfully obstructing an official proceeding.

“What you did here was horrific, as you now concede,” said U.S. Judge Royce Lamberth. “It is the type of conduct that is so serious that I cannot justify downward departure.”

Jacob Chansley, the self-described “QAnon Shaman” who infamously marched through the U.S. Capitol with a spear and horned helmet during the Jan. 6 riot, will appear before a federal judge on Wednesday to be sentenced for his role in the attack.

Prosecutors last week recommended that Chansley, 33, receive a sentence of 51 months, which would be the longest prison term among the hundreds of people who have been criminally charged in connection with the insurrection.
