The 'Bison of Qanon' is pleading guilty for the assault on the US Capitol

The man who broke out last January at the US Capitol disguised as Bison was declared this feature guilty of a position for obstructing an official procedure during a session of Congress.

Jacob Chansley, 34-year-old and a native of Arizona, pleaded guilty during a virtual audience before a federal court of Columbia District (DC), where the US capital is located.

The declaration of guilt, which is part of an agreement with the prosecution, was accepted by Judge Royce Lamberth. In addition, Chansley will pay $ 2,000 in compensation for the damages caused to the legislative complex.

During the view, the nicknamed in the USA as the "Chamán de Qanon" was limited to responding with "Sés" and "NOES" to the questions they asked him.

Under the agreement, Chansley has accepted a recommended penalty of between 41 and 51 months in prison, but, according to the media, it would be disconed on the time it has in jail since January 9. The reading of her sentence has been set for November 17.

Another defendant who pleaded guilty for the same position received an eight-month prison sentence in July.

Hundreds of followers of the US Donald Trump Followers (2017-2021) assaulted the Capitol on January 6, in an event that left five dead, among them a policeman.

The assault occurred during a joint session of the two cameras of the Congress to ratify the victory in the November elections of Joe Biden.

Chansley, an adept to the conspiratory theories of the Qanon movement, became the most mediatic assailant of the Capitol as he made him disguised as bison and came to sit in the chair of the Senate President.

He was arrested three days after the assault accused of entering a restricted building without authorization and violently.

Since then he has remained between bars awaiting trial, although his media interest continued as active after demanding that they offered organic food in jail and refuse to eat for nine days until he achieved it.

Despite initially identifying as an adept of Qanon, his lawyer, Albert Watkins, said this Friday in a statement that has "repudiated the Q" and asked that he does not associate his defendant with that letter.

However, the lawyer admitted that his client will always be remembered as "the face of January 6".

"He is for January 6 what Swoosh for Nike," said Watkins, in reference to the US sportswear brand logo.

More than 600 people have been charged in federal courts for the assault on the Capitol.
