Former U.S. Capitol Police Officer Sentenced to Home Incarceration for Obstruction in Connection to Jan. 6 Insurrection

Former U.S. Capitol Police officer Michael Riley was sentenced to 120 days of home incarceration and two years of probation for offering advice to a rioter and deleting messages when contacted by the FBI. Logan Barnhart, a 42-year-old pipelayer from Michigan, was sentenced to three years in prison for assaulting police at the Capitol during the attack. Judge Amy Berman Jackson took into account Riley's job loss, health issues, and lack of criminal history in delivering the sentence, and noted the seriousness of Barnhart's actions and the need to deter similar behavior in the future.
