The Bloomfield woman who went inside the U.S. Capitol on January 6th is heading to jail for two weeks. A federal judge yesterday sentenced Dona Sue Bissey to 14 days behind bars, 60 hours of community service, and a 500 dollar fine.
Bissey pleaded guilty to misdemeanor charges for being inside the Capitol, and prosecutors originally suggested probation. There’s no evidence that Bissey did anything but enter the U.S. Capitol on January 6th.
However, prosecutors say she’s a Q-Anon believer, and those beliefs make her dangerous. Her lawyer said she should be sentenced for her actions, not what she believes. She will be allowed to turn herself in, and must report for her prison sentence at the start of 2022.
