Rioter Who Smoked Weed In Capitol Gets Double DOJ’s Recommended Sentence After Showing “No Remorse”

Washington DC’s ABC News affiliate reports:

A federal judge sentenced a New York man to twice the government’s recommended sentence on Wednesday, saying he’d shown no remorse for and had even downplayed the Jan. 6 assault on the U.S. Capitol Building.

James Bonet, 30, pleaded guilty in October to one misdemeanor charge of entering and remaining in a restricted building. The judge sentenced Bonet to 90 days in jail – twice the DOJ’s request – and a year of supervised release.

As part of the plea deal, the government agreed to drop a much more serious felony charge of obstructing the joint session of Congress that could have earned Bonet up to 20 years in prison.
