A Texas male was sentenced to more than 3 years in jail Wednesday for attacking policeman throughout the United States Capitol riot and threatening Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez on Twitter soon after the attack.
Attic Miller, 36, pleaded guilty in December to charges connected to his conduct on January 6, 2021. He was apprehended weeks after the riot– on Inauguration Day– while using a t-shirt that stated: “I existed, Washington, D.C., January 6, 2021.”.
According to his plea contract, Miller brought equipment with him to DC, consisting of a rope, a grappling hook and a mouth guard, and district attorneys stated he was “at the leading edge of every barrier reversed, authorities line overrun, and entranceway breached within his distance that day.” Miller was apprehended two times throughout the riot, according to court files.
When he left the Capitol, he took the battle to Twitter, according to court files. In reaction to a tweet from Ocasio-Cortez requiring then-President Donald Trump’s impeachment, Miller reacted: “Assassinate AOC.”.
” At the time that I tweeted at the Congresswoman, I planned that the interaction be viewed as a major intent to dedicate violence versus the Congresswoman,” Miller stated in court files as part of his plea contract. He likewise imposed risks versus the officer who shot and eliminated a pro-Trump rioter throughout the melee, according to court files, stating that he wished to “hug his neck with a great rope.”.
