The rioter at the front of a mob that chased US Capitol Police Officer Eugene Goodman up flights of stairs near the Senate chamber on January 6, 2021, has been sentenced to five years behind bars.

Douglas Jensen, who prosecutors say was one of the first 10 rioters to enter the Capitol during the attack, was convicted by a jury in September of each of the seven charges he faced, including obstruction of an official proceeding and assaulting a police officer.

"You, by your own actions, put yourself at the forefront of that mob," Judge Timothy Kelly said to Jensen before handing down his verdict Friday, which includes 36 months of supervised release after he serves his time and $2,000 in restitution for damage to the Capitol.

Kelly said that the long history of a peaceful transition of power in the US was "snapped" by Jensen and others. "We can't get that back, it's broken."

"We cannot, as a country, have what happened on January 6, 2021, ever happen again," Kelly added.

Jensen, dressed in a shirt with the logo of QAnon - a baseless conspiracy theory about a deep-state pedophilic cabal that adherents thought former-President Donald Trump would expose - scaled a 20-foot wall on January 6 before breaking into the Capitol and demanding that Capitol Police arrest then-Vice President Mike Pence, prosecutors said.

"He believed the 'storm' had arrived and that corrupt politicians were going to be arrested," Jensen's attorney, Christopher Davis, wrote in a court filing, referring to the belief by QAnon followers in a day of reckoning for corrupt politicians and deep state operatives.

After nearly two years behind bars, Davis wrote, Jensen has moved on from his QAnon beliefs and Trump's false claims of election fraud. "He has had more than enough time to dwell upon his actions," his attorney wrote. "He wants to return to his normal life, raise his children, and be with his wife."

During the attack, Goodman, who was being chased by Jensen and others in the mob, led the group away from the Senate chamber and up to an area guarded by more police officers, where Jensen faced off with police for nearly 30 minutes.

"What would have happened if the group you led that day turned the other way," toward the Capitol, Kelly said to Jensen. "God only knows."

US Capitol Police Inspector Tom Lloyd, who gave a statement during Friday's sentencing, said "there would have been tremendous bloodshed" were it not for Goodman's actions that day.

According to prosecutors, Jensen told the FBI in an interview after January 6 that what he did that day "would have been worth it" if Trump had remained in power.

Before being sentenced, Jensen did not apologize for his actions on January 6 but said he couldn't change the past and that he wanted "to go back to being a family man" and return to his life before "getting involved in politics."

In a sentencing memorandum, prosecutors said that "Jensen was a ringleader during the attack on the U.S. Capitol, working to rile up the crowd and encourage others to follow him into and through the building."

Before a deputy US Marshal escorted him out of the courtroom, Jensen blew a kiss to his wife, sitting in the audience, who returned one to him.

I said something stupid and then went back and read this:

This guy is a real piece of work. I think he deserves more than 5 years:

And he will be able to.....  once his sentence is completed.   Of course there may be a few other changes to his life given the fact that he's now a convicted felon, but once he's serviced his sentence he'll be able to go back to his life and rebuild.

he feels no remorse. he's hoping for a pardon, once his hero gets elected, again. right now all of his Q pals are dialing up the mrs. to see if she needs anything done around the house while he's away.

True.  But if he's not showing any remorse then he probably won't apologize either.

believe it or not, I actually feel sorry for all these traitors wives and kids, and what they've been thru so far because of the monumental ignorance of daddy. hopefully this clown's wife files for divorce as soon as the key turns in the lock on his cell and then she cleans his clock in court and gets child support retroactive to his initial incarceration date. give him that to look forward to instead when he gets out.

Perhaps Mr. Jensen should have stated he was mislead, and susceptible to outlandish claims lacking evidence.  On the other hand an admission of his mental weakness would have only proven his ill capacity to discern truth from fiction.

what amuses me most is that trump had 2 weeks to blanket pardon all of those J6 traitors, so why didn't he?

Stalling tactic.  He figures their investigations and trials will take up so many DOJ resources that there won't be any to focus on him.

I don't believe he thinks about any likely cause/effect scenarios prior to his impulsive acts, but there is something to what you're suggesting. an informed person I know told me that there were enough pings on the DC cell phone towers J6 to provide for many investigation careers in a few intelligence agencies.

Simple. They weren't successful so... Nothing in it for Trump.
