Indiana resident Joshua Wagner gets 30 days in jail for Capitol Riot
GREENWOOD, Ind. - A central Indiana man has been sentenced to 30 days behind bars for his role in the 2021 riot at the U.S. Capitol.
Joshua Wagner of Greenwood apologized in court and says "there's nothing I can do to take that back."
Wagner pleaded guilty last year to a misdemeanor.
The government says Wagner's phone video showed him referring to Capitol police officers as "traitors."
Federal Judge Amy Berman Jackson says Wagner clearly wanted to inspire the rioters.
The judge says he wasn't like others who "stepped in, took a selfie and stepped out."
A co-defendant, Israel Tutrow of Greenfield was placed on probation in December.
