WASHINGTON (AP) — A Minnesota man who repeatedly attacked police officers during the U.S. Capitol riot, wielded a police baton as a weapon and stole two riot shields has been sentenced to nearly three years in prison. Brian Mock asked for leniency before Chief Judge James Boasberg sentenced him on Thursday to two years and nine months in prison. Mock helped remove two police barricades before he assaulted four officers during the Jan. 6, 2021, siege. Prosecutors had recommended sentencing Mock to over nine years in prison. Boasberg convicted Mock of all 11 counts in his indictment after hearing trial testimony without a jury.
