Ray Epps, a key figure in the January 6 Capitol breach, has been sentenced to probation despite prosecutors recommending six months in prison.

Epps, a former Oath Keepers member, pleaded guilty to a misdemeanor charge and was ordered to pay restitution and perform community service.

“This 62-year-old man has displayed remorse, accepted responsibility, and taken-on the brand of a convicted criminal that shames and embarrasses him and his family and will stain him for the rest of his life,” attorney Ed Ungvarsky said. (Trending: Fox News Star Accused Of Major Scandal)

His legal team argued for probation, citing his remorse and acceptance of responsibility.

Epps was seen in videos encouraging others to breach the Capitol and later claimed to have orchestrated the riot.

Initially on the FBI’s wanted list, Epps struck a deal with the DOJ in September, leading to his sentencing.
