DES MOINES, Iowa (AP) — An Iowa man and his Minnesota son have pleaded guilty to a charge of civil disorder related to the Jan. 6, 2021 Capitol riot, admitting that they entered the building through a broken window and pushed through a police line once inside. Both 51-year-old Daryl Johnson, of St. Ansgar, Iowa, and 29-year-old Daniel Johnson, of Austin, Minnesota, made social media posts noting their participation in the insurrection. They admitted guilt in a video hearing Tuesday. They’re likely to get up to six months in prison at their April 12 sentencing. They agreed to pay restitution of $2,000 each to help defray the $1.5 million in damage to the Capitol.
