Five members of a Texas family were sentenced Wednesday for their roles in the U.S. Capitol breach on Jan. 6, 2021.
Three of their adult children were sentenced to probation, with the oldest child, Kristi, also receiving a brief period of home confinement.
Members of the family were accused of bragging about their roles on Jan. 6, or of misrepresenting the size and scope of the attack and damage.
The judge said Thomas Munn "should've known better before leading the family into a chaotic situation.".
Howell also said some of the family members had made social media posts that "contributed to the misinformation about Jan.
The family trip to D.C. on Jan. 6 "went so far off the rails, there are five family members standing before a federal judge at sentencing," Howell said.
The Munn children were sentenced first, as their mother and father sat in the back rows of the courtroom. »
