Federal prosecutors are opposing a Jan. 6 rioter’s request to delay his sentencing, suggesting that he may be seeking to remain incarcerated.

Brandon Fellows, who represented himself at trial, faces a potential 37-month prison term.

Prosecutors argue that delaying his sentencing could result in him serving more time behind bars than the sentence itself.

“We had to take the election back. It was stolen,” Fellows said.

Fellows has expressed a lack of remorse and has made inflammatory statements, leading prosecutors to seek the 37-month incarceration.

Fellows “is in the unique position that proceeding with sentencing as planned on February 29 may result in his release on that date,” federal prosecutors said.

They believe he is attempting to postpone his hearing by any means necessary.

“The Government has no doubt that he would like to delay his sentencing by any means necessary,” they wrote. “The defendant has demonstrated that he is in no particular hurry for his case to conclude, even though he is in custody.”

Fellows has been vocal about his actions, showing a persistent lack of remorse.

“Brought my heart joy to see these members terrified for their lives,” Fellows wrote online. “For what they have done and are doing to this country I hope they live in constant fear.”
