An Idaho woman convicted of felony charges related to the Capitol attacks on Jan. 6, 2021 was sentenced to 30 months behind bars on Wednesday—and then immediately hopped on Facebook to complain about it to her followers. “I understood what Jesus felt like when he was in the garden of Gethsemane praying and felt so alone,” said Yvonne St Cyr, according to KTVB.
The 55-year-old was also handed 36 months’ probation, $2,000 in restitution, and a $1,000 fine in a sentencing hearing that was punctuated by what NBC News labeled her “bizarre” 45-minute rant. “I did the right thing,” St Cyr said of her actions on Jan. 6. “I know it sounds delusional.”
In her subsequent Facebook live video, St Cyr explained that her prison report date was six weeks away. “So we’ve got six weeks for America to figure it out and stand up and get some truth, or I’m going to jail,” she said. In the meantime, she advised her followers to “just keep watching Tucker, keep spreading the truth, keep talking about the corruption, keep sharing, and we will bring the system down.”

In a live video that appears to have been taken in St Cyr’s hotel room following the riot, she talks about breaching the Capitol and references the QAnon conspiracy theory, which claims that the government is controlled by a secret cabal of Satan-worshiping Democrats and elites who sexually assault children and drink their blood. She also repeated unfounded claims that President Joe Biden’s victory was the result of fraud.
Her husband, Troy St. Cyr, wrote a letter of support dated Sept. 11 — he said in the letter “Our President said come to DC on Jan 6 for the stop the steal rally, so we packed up and went to answer the call.”
“The truth is out there, our country is at a tipping point. Once tipped the avalanche of truth will be out there for all Americans to see. You will have to make your own choice on what side of history you choose to be on. I hope you will be on the right side of history because this decision will have consequences either way,” Troy St Cyr wrote.
