One of the hosts of Alex Jones‘ conspiracy theory-pushing news outlet Infowars has been sentenced to prison over his role in the Jan. 6 Capitol riot, NBC News reported.
Owen Shroyer is one of only a handful of Jan. 6 participants charged with a crime despite neither entering the Capitol building nor being accused of committing violence or destruction on Capitol grounds. Prosecutors charged Shroyer because he had previously signed a deferred prosecution agreement after interrupting a congressional hearing in 2019 and had agreed as part of that case not to utter “loud, threatening, or abusive language, or to engage in any disorderly or disruptive conduct, at any place upon the United States Capitol Grounds.”
Shroyer was sentenced to 60 days in prison.
