U.S. Senior Judge John D. Bates issued the verdict against John Nassif.

Nassif, 56, was convicted of entering and remaining in a restricted building, disorderly and disruptive conduct in a restricted building, violent entry and disorderly conduct in a Capitol building and parading, demonstrating, or picketing in a Capitol building.

He was arrested in May 2021 after the FBI received a tip two days after the attack, saying Nassif was in the U.S. Capitol during the riot and posted pictures of himself on Facebook.

Sentencing is scheduled for March 2023 in Washington. Under sentencing guidelines, the maximum punishment for each charge is one year in jail. At this time, he remains on release because federal prosecutors did not seek detention or bond for Nassif.

The judge denied Nassif’s renewed motions to dismiss the charges or for judgment of acquittal.

Hundreds of people, including some supporters of former president Donald Trump, stormed the U.S. Capitol on Jan. 6, 2021 to try to stop Congress from certifying Joe Biden’s election as U.S. president.
