Associated Press

WASHINGTON (AP) — A Pennsylvania man whose father is a prominent conservative activist has been sentenced to nearly four years in prison for storming the U.S. Capitol. Leo Brent Bozell IV smashed a window, chased a police officer and invaded the Senate floor during the Jan. 6, 2021, siege. Bozell’s father, L. Brent Bozell III, founded the Media Research Center and other conservative media organizations. The younger Bozell turned to apologize to two Capitol police officers sitting in the courtroom gallery before U.S. District Judge John Bates sentenced him to three years and nine months behind bars.
