Inauguration Rioters Get Rude Awakening, Could Face 10 Years In Prison and $25K Fine
Many of the career anarchists who were arrested during protests and rioting in Washington, D.C. during the inauguration have a rude awakening coming.
Many have been involved in protests or rioting before where they are faced with a local simple misdemeanor or disorderly person charges.
Many are often given a desk appearance ticket and often the case earns them no real punishment.
Most of the 230 rioters arrested after violent protests erupted in Washington D.C. following Donald Trump’s inauguration will be charged with felony rioting, federal prosecutors said on Saturday.
The charge carries a punishment of up to ten years in jail and a $25,000 fine.
Thousand of protesters launched a violent rampage just blocks away from the White House as anti-Trump demonstrators smashed store windows, set fire to cars and threw bricks at police.
