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 Munn children were sentenced first, as their mother and father sat in the back rows of the courtroom. »

As Ukraine’s counteroffensive advances against an increasingly cornered Putin, it should mainly focus on liberating territory that Russia has seized since February 24.
