Of the 200+ Antifa/Marxists arrested for rioting during Trump’s inauguration, a few have accepted plea deals. Most of those got 50 hours of community service and a fine.
The most serious offender to be sentenced is Dane Powell, who knocked a police officer unconscious with a rock.
Powel agreed to plead guilty to felony rioting and assault on a police officer. He faced six years but was only given four months and a fine. He will have three years supervised release.
Devin E Bartolomed also pleaded guilty to assaulting a police officer. He also pleaded guilty to misdemeanor rioting, destruction of property, and resisting arrest. He was given fifty hours of community service, a fine, and two years probation.
Nearly 200 jury trials have been scheduled for the rest.
The arrests do seem to have put a damper on Antifa activity in Washington DC. Two weekends ago there was a rally at the Lincoln Memorial featuring the “Alt-Right.” Antifa was a no show. In fact, Antifa’s tried to hold a rally in front of the DC police station at the same. Virtually no one showed up, despite the fact that two of Antifa’s most high profile America leaders were present.
