Madison, Wisconsin – On Tuesday, a Wisconsin man pleaded guilty to a misdemeanor in connection with his role in violating the US Capitol last January.
Kevin Loftus has called for a march, demonstration or picketing at the Capitol Building. Eau Claire, a 53-year-old man, appeared on video at the US District Court in Washington after earlier reaching an agreement with the prosecutor’s office.
The offense carries up to six months in prison, but the agreement does not recommend a sentence. However, the deal requires Loftus to pay $ 500 in damages to help pay for the alleged $ 1.5 million in damages to the Capitol during the January 6 riots that erupted among Donald Trump supporters when Congress was to confirm Joe Biden’s election as president. …
According to the criminal lawsuit, Loftus was identified from a photograph taken on him in the Capitol. The witness also identified him. In an interview with the FBI, Loftus admitted that he entered the Capitol on January 6 and took several photos while inside the building, according to the Wisconsin State Journal.
Loftus is scheduled to be sentenced on January 31.
At least four other Wisconsin men were also facing charges for entering the Capitol that day.
