WASHINGTON — A judge accepted a plea and sentencing agreement for an Indiana woman, the first to be sentenced after the January 6 riot at the U.S. Capitol.
Anna Morgan-Lloyd, 49, of Bloomfield, agreed to plead guilty to one misdemeanor charge of demonstrating or picketing in a Capitol building in exchange for three years probation, $500 in restitution, and 40 hours of community service.
A federal judge approved the plea agreement and sentence on Wednesday.
Before receiving her sentence, ABC News reports she tearfully apologized to the court for participating in what she called a "disgraceful" day and said she went to peacefully show support for then-President Donald Trump.
"I'm ashamed that it became a savage display of violence that day," Morgan-Lloyd said.
Morgan-Lloyd traveled to Washington, D.C. with her friend, Dona Sue Bissey, who is also federally charged in the riot.
Morgan-Lloyd was arrested in February after law enforcement discovered Facebook posts from her and a friend that showed them inside the Capitol building
