ST. LOUIS, Mo. – A Valley Park man could face up to six months in prison after pleading guilty today to his role in the January 6 riot at the US Capitol. Nicholas Reimler admitted to parading, demonstrating, or picketing in the capitol building. He faces a misdemeanor charge. Two other misdemeanor counts were dropped in exchange for the plea.

Reimler will pay $500 in restitution. He could still also face a fine of up to $5,000. He’ll be sentenced in December.

Prosecutors said Reimler’s social media posts helped officers discover his role in the riots. He was also seen on a surveillance camera inside the Capitol.
