Gina Bisignano, a Los Angeles beautician who traveled to D.C. on Jan. 6 and participated in the riot at the U.S. Capitol, has pleaded guilty to six of the seven charges against her, admitting to the charges of obstruction of official proceedings, civil disorder, disorderly conduct, entering and remaining in a restricted building or grounds, and physical violence in a restricted building or grounds, Law&Crime reports.
Under her plea agreement, Bisignano will “cooperate fully, truthfully, completely and forthrightly” with all investigations into the riot, which includes answering questions, providing sworn written statements, taking polygraph tests, and “participating in covert law enforcement activities.” She also agreed to turn over any evidence of “any and all evidence of crimes” of which she is aware, along with any “contraband and proceeds of such crimes.”
The one charge she did not plead guilty to was destruction of government property — which will likely be dropped when she’s sentenced. The government states that Bisignano was “hit with a direct shot of chemical irritants deployed by the retreating officers” but nevertheless pushed forward. “As the mob swelled inside the tunnel, and officers were being assaulted, Bisignano climbed on a ledge inside the tunnel, and waved other rioters into the tunnel to assist in the effort to break into the U.S. Capitol building,” the government’s case states.
