Capitol rioter who claimed ‘sovereign citizen’ immunity has now ‘learned the error of my ways’ after stint in jail

Last week, a woman charged for partaking in the riot at the U.S. Capitol on Jan. 6 was ordered to remain in jail due to her history of outbursts in the courtroom. Now in a letter to the court, Pauline Bauer says she learned “the error” of her ways.

Bauer, who is a self-proclaimed “sovereign citizen,” is accused of shouting “Bring Nancy Pelosi out here now. We want to hang that f*cking b*tch. Bring her out,” while she stormed the Capitol with a mob of Trump supporters. She was kept in jail pre-trial due to her outbursts in court, where she claimed that the court has “no dominion over a living soul,” and that she as “a right to my self-determination!

But as NBC4’s Scott MacFarlane points out, her time in jail may have softened her revolutionary persona.

“Pretrial jail could be having impact on Jan 6 defendant Pauline Bauer,” MacFarlane tweeted, adding that she “faces low level charges.”

In a letter to the court this Monday, Bauer claims she’s “learned the error of my ways and will agree to adhere to the conditions of release.

“I apologize for any misstatements before the court and realize that I cannot defend my case from a jail cell,” she wrote.
