The Finnish afternoon newspaper Ilta-Sanomat reports that the US Capitol rioted Kevin Cordon has been sentenced to one year in prison.
The newspaper gave a brief interview with the 34-year-old blood-covered man shortly after he and several other Donald Trump supporters attacked the Washington Capitol in January.
According to the Courthouse News Service, prosecutors cite an interview in which Cordon allegedly showed remorse for access to the building from a broken window as grounds for one month’s imprisonment.
Cordon, on the other hand, was given a probationary period after a federal judge said it was unusual for a first-timer to be imprisoned for a non-violent offense.

The interview was brought to the attention of U.S. authorities when the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) received an anonymous hint from a reader of Ilta-Sanomat.
