Former Michigan GOP Gubernatorial Candidate Sentenced For Jan. 6 Attack

Ryan Kelley, a former Republican front-runner during the 2022 Michigan governor’s race, was sentenced Tuesday to 60 days in prison for his actions during the Jan. 6, 2021, attack on the U.S. Capitol.


Kelley pleaded guilty in July to a federal misdemeanor of entering and remaining on restricted grounds ― down from the four misdemeanor charges he faced upon his arrest a month prior.


Prosecutors had pushed U.S. District Judge Christopher R. Cooper to issue a three-month sentence, noting Kelley’s distinct lack of remorse for his actions, including publishing statements on social media making light of the day.
