A Nevada (claiming to be a “Sovereign Citizen”) was sentenced to 72 months in prison for assaulting law enforcement officers during the Jan. 6 Capitol Riots. 35-year-old Josiah Kenyon of Winnemucca will serve 36 months of parole following his release and will pay more than $43,000 in restitution as well.
He pleaded guilty to two felonies; assaulting a law enforcement officer with a dangerous weapon and assaulting a law enforcement officer with a dangerous weapon resulting in bodily injury.
Kenyon hit one officer in the leg, causing them to fall to the ground. That officer suffered pain and swelling to his right ankle. He then hit another officer in the head with the table leg, lodging it between his helmet and face shield.
Kenyon went on the run after the insurrection leaving his wife and children in an unheated trailer in Nevada.
Sovereign citizens typically believe that the government has no authority over them and that they can declare themselves exempt from laws and regulations by asserting their status as a sovereign citizen. They may refuse to pay taxes, obtain driver’s licenses or other government-issued identification, or comply with court orders, among other things.
In other words. Republicans.
