Former California Police Chief Sentenced to 11+ Years in Prison for Role in U.S. Capitol Attack

Alan Hostetter, a former California police chief, was sentenced to more than 11 years in federal prison on Thursday for his role in the U.S. Capitol attack on January 6, 2021. He was found guilty of conspiracy to obstruct an official proceeding, obstruction of an official proceeding, entering or remaining on restricted grounds with a deadly or dangerous weapon and disorderly or disruptive conduct on restricted grounds with a deadly or dangerous weapon. At his sentencing hearing, Hostetter continued to spread conspiracy theories and called for the execution of Donald Trump's political enemies, prompting the judge to call his actions "a direct assault on the heart of our democracy."
