Chief United States District Judge Beryl Howell drops hammer on two January 6th defendants, both getting nearly the harshest sentences to date

James Mault of Fayetteville, North Carolina and a co-defendant were sentenced to 44 months in prison and 3 years of supervised release for participating in the insurrection and for attacking police with chemical weapons.

Given the attacks on the police, clearly a fair and suitable sentence and a welcome change from some of the very weak sentencing I have seen going on.

3 years and 8 months in Federal prison is very much a fair and just sentence.

Not sure what the Army is going to do with him. He fraudulently reenlisted, without informing the military of the pending criminal charges. Not sure if they will simply separate him with a general discharge under other than honorable conditions or if they will seek a punitive discharge for the crime of fraudulent enlistment.

He reenlisted before he was charged, according to your link.

44 months sounds reasonable for felony assault.

He knew he was under investigation, which he would have been required to report to the Army. So it still constitutes fraudulent enlisted.

I think the Army will do the easier and quieter thing and grant him an administrative discharge.

If that’s the harshest, the others don’t have much to worry about. lol

I do find it odd that Antifa used Bear spray on the police during their violent struggles against cops. I wondered if any of them were arrested, convicted and sentence to 44 months. :thinking:
