‘QAnon Shaman’ gets more than three years in jail for role in Capitol riot


The so-called “QAnon Shaman,” known for storming the US Capitol in a coyote-fur headdress and American-flag face paint, was sentenced to 41 months in federal prison Wednesday for his role in the Jan. 6 attack, according to a report.

Jacob Chansley, 34, of Phoenix — who had pleaded guilty to one count of obstruction — was given the sentence by District of Columbia Judge Royce Lamberth, according to CBS News. He will also be placed on probation for three years after his release.
