Jenna Ryan, a Texas realtor who took a private plane to the Jan. 6 Capitol riot pleaded guilty to a misdemeanor charge on Thursday and said she regrets “buying” into Donald Trump’s big lie that led to the assault on the US Capitol.

Ryan pleaded guilty to one charge of parading, demonstrating or picketing in the Capitol at a plea agreement hearing, Business Insider reported.

Ryan was arrested on Jan. 15 after she posted live video on her social media accounts of her breaking into the Capitol with a mob of fellow Trump supporters.

“We are going to f—ing go in here. Life or death, it doesn’t matter. Here we go,” she said in the video.

After former President Trump failed to pardon Ryan or any of the other Jan. 6 rioters like she thought he would, she spoke to The Washington Post, saying how much she regrets her decisions.

“I bought into a lie, and the lie is the lie, and it’s embarrassing,” Ryan told the Post. “I regret everything.”

As part of the plea deal, she will pay $500 in restitution for the damage done to the Capitol and faces a sentencing hearing in November, where she could get up to six months in jail.
