Capitol rioter Lonnie Coffman, who walked into the U.S. Capitol last Jan. 6 as 11 Molotov cocktails sat in his pickup truck, was sentenced to 46 months in federal prison on Friday, WFFA reports.
Coffman, of Falkville, Alabama, “had an armory in his truck. This must be deterred,” Judge Colleen Kollar-Kotelly said during Coffman’s sentencing. “Forty-six months have been suggested—I decided that separately. That is the correct way to do this.” the judge added.
The 72-year-old MAGA fanatic pleaded guilty in November to possession of an unregistered firearm and carrying a pistol without a license after he was arrested just after the Capitol riot, noted The Daily Beast.
According to the FBI affidavit, Coffman also carried a list of “good guys” and “bad guys,” the latter of which included judges and a Muslim member of the House of Representatives.
During sentencing, Coffman tried to plead with the judge for parole, arguing he was recently incapacitated with COVID and wanted to enjoy a “short vacation” while he still had the capacity to do so. He also said he was in love with his ex-wife
“If I am to serve parole time, I ask your Honor to please relax the travel distance to no less than 350 miles because I need a short vacation while I still have the faculties to enjoy one,” Coffman told the judge.
However, his request was swiftly rejected and the judge ordered him to spend the next four years in prison.
