- The woman, Anna Morgan-Lloyd, will face three years of probation and $500 in restitution after pleading guilty to one charge of misdemeanor disorderly conduct, according to court records.
- Morgan-Lloyd's sentence is likely to serve as a precedent for hundreds of other people arrested with lower-level charges.
A 49-year-old woman from Indiana will serve no prison time in the first criminal sentence related to the Jan. 6 riot at the Capitol, NBC News reported Wednesday.
Anna Morgan-Lloyd was sentenced to three years of probation and ordered to pay $500 in restitution after pleading guilty to one charge of misdemeanor disorderly conduct, NBC News reported, citing court records.
Morgan-Lloyd said she went to Washington on Jan. 6 to support then-President Donald Trump at the "Save America" rally, and later posted about her participation in the riots on social media, according to NBC News. At the hearing, Morgan-Lloyd said she regretted engaging in the riots despite causing no harm to any individual or property, NBC News reported.
"I would just like to apologize to the court, the American people, and my family," Morgan-Lloyd said in brief remarks to Judge Royce Lamberth, according to NBC News. "I went there to show support for President Trump peacefully, and I'm ashamed that it became a savage display of violence."
A representative for Morgan-Lloyd did not immediately respond to CNBC's requests for comment.
Morgan-Lloyd is among the nearly 500 people charged in the riots, with two other defendants also pleading guilty on Wednesday at separate hearings, NBC News reported. Her sentence is likely to serve as a precedent for hundreds of other people arrested with lower-level charges.
Among them are a Virginia couple who also pleaded guilty last month for charges of misdemeanor disorderly conduct. Joshua and Jessica Bustle have yet to be sentenced, but could face a maximum of six months in prison.
