Former Proud Boys leader sentenced to 22 years

Enrique Tarrio wasn’t actually present at the deadly Capitol building riot in 2021.

But the former chairman of the far-right militia group the Proud Boys has been sentenced to 22 years in jail for ‘seditious conspiracy’.

That means that he has been given the longest prison sentence of any of the 1,100 people who have so far been charged over the storming of the Washington building on January the 6th.
