    ‘Ain’t none of you s—‘: Rioter who assaulted police at Capitol gets prison — but can travel to see his son graduate from high school – By Brandi Buchman (Law & Crime) / Feb 27, 2024

    Texan Jason Farris shoved police violently to the ground on Jan. 6 and helped the mob remove a barricade that led to another cop being knocked unconscious once struck in the head by a wooden beam soaring through the air. For his role in the riot and assault, Farris was sentenced to 18 months in prison this month.

    But it won’t stop him from seeing his son graduate this summer.

    Farris, 45, was sentenced to by U.S. District Judge Amy Berman Jackson on Feb. 23. He pleaded guilty last October to a single charge of assaulting, resisting or impeding certain officers at the Capitol. He was also sentenced to 24 months supervised release and was fined $2,000. Though he faced other charges including obstruction of law enforcement during a civil disorder — which carried a potential five-year sentence — he struck a plea agreement for the assault charge in March 2023.
