Kevin Lyons, a 40-year-old man from Chicago who was charged with entering the US Capitol during the attack on January 6th, has been found guilty Friday of all six counts related to his involvement in the mob breach. Lyons had allegedly posted photographs of himself standing outside then-House Speaker Nancy Pelosi's office and removed items from her office.
Throughout that fateful day, Lyon recorded himself participating in various activities within the U.S. Capitol building while also texting updates to others as he faced tear gas and flash-bangs deployed by law enforcement officers attempting to regain control over the situation. Rioters breached into Congress following a rally hosted by then-President Donald Trump.
Lyons signed an agreement with federal prosecutors that included five misdemeanors and one felony charge leveled against him relating directly to his time spent inside the Capitol building during its siege. The statement provided facts detailing his actions throughout this critical period for both his defense attorneys and prosecution teams alike.
As per legal proceedings surrounding this case, Kevin Lyons will be waiting until July 14th for sentencing after being convicted via trial under these serious charges stemming outwards from events occurring last year at America's heartland government institution - where democracy itself came under fire through violent insurrectionist efforts led largely due right-wing extremist groups pushing back against election results certifying Joe Biden victorious over incumbent leader-of-the-free-world figurehead; President Trump (now impeached twice).
