An ultra-right leader sentenced to 18 years in prison for the assault on the US Capitol

USA.- The founder of the far-right group Oath Keepers, Stewart Rhodes, was sentenced this Thursday to 18 years in prison for leading the conspiracy to try to keep former US President Donald Trump in power.

This is the strongest sentence handed down so far against a defendant for the attack on January 6, 2021 against the US Capitol.

Before reading the sentence, District Judge Amit Mehta stressed that “absolutely” it is not possible to allow “a group of citizens, who just because they did not like the result of the elections or believe that the law was complied with as should, foment a revolution.”
