‘Pop Champagne And Rejoice’ – CBS Detroit

NORTH TEXAS (CBSDFW.COM) Jennifer ‘Jenna’ Ryan, a North Texas real estate agent, has been jailed for participating in the January 6 Capitol Uprising.

Ryan, who flew to Washington, DC on a private jet and livestreamed the events at the Capitol while promoting his business, was sentenced to 60 days in prison and sentenced to pay a $ 1,000 fine.

The 51-year-old, who admitted she “paraded, demonstrated or put the picket” inside the country’s capital, must also pay $ 500 to the Capitol’s architect.

Ryan tweeted Thursday afternoon. “I just want to make a general statement to all the people who call me and text me. You win !!! I’m going to jail. So you don’t have to contact me anymore. Pop champagne and rejoice then. But just let me be. Thank you. “

The verdict comes months after the Frisco real estate agent wrote on social media that she was definitely not going to jail, and apologized for having blonde hair, white skin, a good job and a great future.

Judge Christopher Cooper said in sentencing, “there is a tendency in these January 6 cases to bring everyone together … but the role of each defendant was different.” He noted that Ryan was not prosecuted for the belief that the election was stolen, but for the decision to enter the Capitol building that day.

Following the sentencing, Judge Cooper said: “Your case has generated a great deal of public interest. And as a result, people will be interested to know what sentence you are getting. That sentence will tell them something about how the courts and how our country reacted. And I think the verdict should tell them that we take it seriously … and that it must never happen again. ”

Ryan said, “I made a mistake and I’m sorry” and “it’s not something like who I am.”

Days after arrest and release, Ryan told KTVT-TV in Dallas that she felt that she and everyone who went to the Capitol that day deserved a pardon from then-President Trump.

After pleading guilty to one of four charges against her, Ryan reported himself to the FBI on January 15th. She had been accused of entering and remaining in a restricted building, disorder and disruptive behavior in a restricted building, violent access and disorder in a Capitol building and parade, demonstration or strike in a Capitol building. As part of a complaints agreement, she pleaded guilty to the charge of parade, demonstration or strike in a Capitol building – a misdemeanor.
