Richard Barnett sentenced to four and a half years

A Jan. 6 rioter who was photographed with his feet on former Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s (D-Calif.) desk amid the attack on the Capitol was sentenced to 4 1/2 years in prison Wednesday, according to the Justice Department.

Richard “Bigo” Barnett, 62, was convicted in January of four felonies and four misdemeanors related to the Jan. 6, 2021, attack on the Capitol, including obstructing an official proceeding and carrying a dangerous weapon in a restricted building.

Barnett found his way into Pelosi’s office amid the riot, where he left an expletive-laden message for the then-Speaker and stole an envelope. The photo of Barnett in Pelosi’s office would become one of the most well-known images from the day.
