As investigations into the Jan. 6 insurrection at the Capitol Building in Washington D.C. continue, some of the rioters have already been or are still in the process of being punished for the violent crimes they committed that day. A Connecticut mother and her adult daughter learned their fate on Monday as the courts there handed down their sentence.

Jean Lavin and Carla Krzywicki, two women from Canterbury, Connecticut, have been convicted of “parading, demonstrating, or picketing in a capitol building” and each received their sentence on Monday. Lavin, who could be seen on video picketing inside the building carrying a sign saying “Trump won,” was sentenced to 10 days in jail to be served over five consecutive weekends along with 36 months of probation and a $2,500 fine. Krzywicki received a sentence of 36 months probation.
According to Law & Crime:
‘Chief U.S. District Judge Beryl Howell sentenced Lavin to three years of probation, including as a condition of probation a term of 10 days in jail to be served intermittently over the course of five weekends. She also ordered Lavin to serve two months of home detention as well as a fine of $2,500 fine in addition to the standard $500 in restitution that has become standard for Jan. 6 defendants who have pleaded guilty.’
Twitter was not at all sympathetic to the people who committed treasonous acts against our country, and they let their voices be heard about it. Read some of their comments below:
