Donald Trump supporter and capitol rioter Doug Jensen was found guilty on seven felony charges Friday over his role in the January 6 attack on the US Capitol, including charges of assaulting, resisting or impeding a law enforcement officer; obstruction of an official proceeding; interfering with a law enforcement officer during a civil disorder; entering and remaining in a restricted building or grounds with a dangerous weapon; and disorderly and disruptive conduct in a restricted building or grounds with a dangerous weapon.

As noted by US TODAY, Jensen received national attention after a video showing him leading a group of rioters up the stairs while chasing a police officer inside the Capitol went viral. The group was apparently pursuing Capitol Police Officer Eugene Goodman.

Jensen was also found guilty of two misdemeanor charges the news outlet reported.

The most serious charge against Jensen was obstructing an official proceeding, which carries a maximum 20-year sentence. He could also get an additional five years in prison for civil disorder or one year for entering restricted grounds or impeding a police officer, according to the U.S. Attorney’s Office for the District of Columbia.
