WASHINGTON — A 29-year-old eastern Missouri man has been sentenced to three years of probation after he attended the Jan. 6 riot at the U.S. Capitol. Nicholas Burton Reimler, of Valley Park, was sentenced Friday. He pleaded guilty in September to parading, demonstrating or picketing in the Capitol building, a misdemeanor.
Prosecutors said Reimler entered the Capitol for about 15 minutes. During the sentencing, U.S. District Judge Randolph Moss noted that Reimler did not engage in violence or property destruction and did not go into the House or Senate chambers. Before he was sentenced, Reimler apologized for being at the Capitol that day.
