An Indiana woman who bragged that storming the U.S. Capitol on Jan. 6 was the “best f***ing day” of her life has been given a jail sentence, The Hill reports.
Dona Sue Bissey was sentenced this Tuesday to 14 days in jail and 60 hours of community service. She will also have to pay a $500 fine. In July, she pleaded guilty to a single charge of parading, demonstrating or picketing in a Capitol building. Three other charges against her were dropped as part of a plea agreement.
From The Hill:
Bissey and her friend, Anna Morgan-Lloyd, went to the “Stop the Steal” rally that preceded the riot. The pair entered the Capitol but were inside for no more than 10 minutes before leaving.
According to court documents, authorities were tipped off to Bissey and Morgan-Lloyd from witnesses who saw photos and videos of the women that Bissey posted on Facebook.
One photo showed Bissey and Morgan-Lloyd inside the Capitol, and the caption read “Inside Capitol Building.” In a comment thread under the post, Bissey said “best f—ing day ever!! I’ll never forget. We got into the Capitol Building.”
Morgan-Lloyd was sentenced to three years of probation, $500 in restitution and 40 hours of community service in June after pleading guilty to the same charge Bissey pleaded to. Prosecutors asked the court to impose the same sentence on Bissey.
