Jan. 6 Rioters Who Put Foot On Desk In Pelosi’s Office Sentenced To 54 Months In Prison

3 Min Read

The Arkansas man who became famous for propping his foot on a desk in then-House Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s office during the Jan. 6, 2021, insurrection was sentenced this week to 54 months in prison.

Earlier this year, Richard “Bigo” Barnett was convicted on eight counts related to his role in the Capitol riots, including civil disorder, obstruction of an official proceeding and theft of government property.

In a Washington court Wednesday, Judge Christopher Cooper ordered him to serve 4.5 years behind bars, saying that Barnett had “not shown any acceptance of responsibility.”

Federal prosecutors had asked Cooper to give Barnett more than seven years for his actions, while Barnett’s lawyers had requested a six-month sentence. His attorneys claimed that the The 63-year-old retired firefighter and bull rider had traveled to Washington only “to peacefully protest” but was “unfortunately caught up in the events” of Jan. 6, according to NBC News.

During the riot, Barnett entered Pelosi’s office and posed for a photo with his foot on a desk in the speaker’s office. Later, he bragged about swiping an envelope before leaving, according to the BBC.

Officials said he had carried a stun gun that could have harmed the California Democrats.

In October, Pelosi recalled her initial reaction to learning about Barnett’s behavior in her office.

“I thought, ‘You are a pathetic creature, Mister, if you think that you’re exerting your manhood by putting your feet on my desk,’” she said at the time.

During Wednesday’s sentencing hearing, Barnett told the court that he was “not proud” of his behavior during the riots but insisted that it was not “threatening.”

“They want me to be remorseful for things I did not do,” he said, adding that he plans to appeal to his convictions and feels he deserves only probation.

“Jan. 6 was a traumatic day for everyone,” he added. “I admit I was angry and I apologize for that.”
