Former Marine gets sentenced for involvement in Jan. 6 riot
A former Marine was sentenced Friday to 60 days in jail for his involvement in the Jan. 6 insurrection, when he told a reporter that rioters were "going to take" the Capitol, NBC News reports.
Driving the news: Boyd Camper pleaded guilty to one count of parading, demonstrating or picketing in the Capitol and agreed to pay $500 toward repairing the Capitol.
- Boyd, who is from Montana, was originally charged with four misdemeanors, per NBC.
The big picture: Camper allegedly traveled to D.C. with his 10-year-old son for former President Trump's speech on the mall. Camper found Trump's speech "wanting," per a sentencing memo, prompting him to enter the Capitol and leave his son with a friend.
- After entering the building, Camper told a CBS reporter that he was on the "front line" of individuals entering the Capitol, adding, "we’re going to take" the building.
- Boyd in his sentencing memo apologized for his involvement in the riot, saying: "I got caught up in the synergy and moment of the crowd and made a bad decision to enter. My conduct was not violent, did not damage anything, I respected our police officers."
- Boyd is one of more than 650 people to have been charged in connection with the Jan. 6 riot.
