U.S. District Judge Dabney Friedrich sentenced Guy Reffitt to serve 87 months in prison, to be followed by 3 years of supervised release. Dabney warned Reffitt if he violates terms he will go back to prison for up to the maximum term. This was the minimum sentence under sentencing guidelines of 87-108 months.
Reffitt will serve the longest prison term handed down to date to any defendant connected to January 6th.
Please help Guy Reffitt pay for an Appeals attorney HERE. Hopefully by that time the country will be in a better place to judge this man.
The “good” news and win here is the Judge did not apply the “Upwards Departure for Terrorism” to Reffitt’s sentence, which would add many more years to his sentence recommendation. This was pushed by the shameless Department of Injustice prosecutors who were hoping to find a way to legally label January 6th defendants as “Terrorists”. The prosecutors hope to discourage all J6 defendants from going to trial, and scare them into cooperating and taking a plea by terrorizing them with the possibility of a “Terrorism Upwards Departure” at Sentencing if found guilty.
