On January 6, 2021, during the storming of the U.S. Capitol, a guy from Southern California used pepper spray to att@ck police and was later sentenced to 4 1/2 years in jail, according to federal authorities.
In a news release on Friday, the U.S. Department of Justice said that Jeffrey Scott Brown, 56, of Santa Ana, had been sentenced to 54 months in federal prison for felony and misdemeanor crimes connected to the mob att@ck by supporters of the former president Donald Trump.
According to the DOJ, over 1,000 persons have been detained, including over 320 accused of assaulting or obstructing law officers. On that particular day, Trump backers attempted to prevent Congress from declaring Joe Biden as the winner of the presidential election over Trump.

At the trial in December, Brown and two additional defendants were convicted guilty. May is the date set for sentencing for Uniontown, Pennsylvania’s Peter J. Schwartz. Markus Maly of Fincastle, Virginia was not sentenced on Friday as planned; why is unclear.
Brown, who they said dove into the front of an improvised police line and used a stolen pepper spray can be provided to him by Schwartz on officers, had faced a sentencing request of 70 months.
According to court records, Samuel C. Moore, Brown’s attorney, requested a 40-month prison sentence. Moore claimed that “less than 10 minutes of Mr. Brown’s life” were engaged in the incident, and the purported pepper spray “did not make contact with any specific victim.”
However, according to Moore, Brown acknowledges that he should not have been in the Capitol tunnel that day and accepts responsibility for it.
