Capitol rioter sentenced to hard time
A rioter who chased U.S. Capitol Police Eugene Goodman during the January 6, 2021, insurrection, sparked by former President Donald Trump, has been sentenced to five years in prison.
Douglas Jensen, who was one of 10 rioters to enter the Capitol, was convicted by a jury in September of seven charges. The charges included obstruction of justice and assaulting a police officer.
His sentence includes 36 months of supervised release and $2,000 in restitution for damage to the Capitol.
During the attack, Jensen and others faced off with police for nearly 30 minutes. He did not apologize for his actions, and he said he wanted to go back and be a family man.
Later, he blew a kiss to his wife, who was sitting in the gallery, before he was taken away.
It’s not known if he said anything to Goodman.
