A Pennsylvania man involved in the U.S. Capitol riot cooperated with authorities and was sentenced in secret for his actions.

Samuel Lazar admitted to assaulting police officers and encouraging others to take officers’ weapons.

He was sentenced to 30 months in prison during a sealed hearing. Prosecutors requested a reduced sentence due to his cooperation.

“He blindly followed President Trump’s cry to ‘fight like hell to take back the country,'” attorney Hope Lefeber wrote.

The case remained under seal even after his release, but was unsealed after a legal challenge by news outlets.
