Rioter Gets 18 Months In Unrelated Drugs/Guns Case

Jacksonville’s NBC News affiliate reports:

An Orange Park man who was found with illegal guns and drugs in his home during the execution of a search warrant connected to his role in the Capitol riots was sentenced on Wednesday. Adam Honeycutt, 40, was sentenced to 18 months in federal prison by Senior District Judge Harvey Schlesinger after he was found with four unsecured handguns and marijuana in his home in February. He will likely get credit for eight months he has already served, a prosecutor said.

“I know I messed up. I was wrong,” he told Judge Schlesinger. In a separate case related to his role in the Jan. 6 riot, Honeycutt is charged with entering a restricted area without lawful authority, which carries up to one year in prison plus fines, and violent entry and disorderly conduct on Capitol grounds, which carries up to six months in prison and a $5,000 fine. He is expected to have a court date in January.
