Arkansas Man Who Put Feet on Nancy Pelosi's Desk Sentenced to 4-5 Years in Prison

The Arkansas man who put his feet on former House Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s desk during the January 6 riot has been sentenced to four and a half years in prison, according to reports.

Richard “Bigo” Barnett, the 62-year-old retired firefighter, was found guilty in January this year on eight counts, including felony charges of civil disorder and obstruction of an official proceeding.

A Federal judge sentenced Barnett to four and half years in prison after prosecutors requested he be given more than seven years.

Fox News noted, “He was ultimately sentenced to four and a half years in prison and three years of supervised release.”

The image of Barnett lounging at a desk on Nancy Pelosi’s desk in her office became one of the most memorable images from the January 6, 2021, events, which ultimately landed him a prison sentence.

During the trial, Barnett claimed he had unintentionally entered Pelosi’s office while searching for the bathroom where he posed for photographs with two news photographers.

He also left a note that said, “Nancy, Bigo was here, you bitch.”

“We took back our house, and I took Nancy Pelosi’s office,” he told people that day.

Barnett said during the trial, he was caught up in the moment.

“I was just in the moment,” Barnett said. “I’m just kind of going with the flow at this point.”

Barnett said that he regrets attending the “Stop the Steal” rally.

“Two years of lost life. Misery for my family,” Barnett testified in January.

He also said he would apologize to Nancy Pelosi if he could.

However, he told the court that he does not feel remorseful for things he “did not do.”

“They want me to be remorseful for things I did not do,” he said, adding that he “wasn’t treated fairly.”

“This was an enigma in my life,” Barnett said. “January 6 was a traumatic day for everyone … I admit I was angry, and I apologize for that.”

Barnett’s attorneys said he became a government target after the photo went viral.

“Mr. Barnett is here because of the picture,” defense attorney Jonathan Gross said in court.

“The government was mad because Richard Barnett was sitting at a desk.”

“Mr. Barnett never called for violence. Never called for insurrection. He was mad, but even in his anger, his rhetoric was restrained, and he never called for actual violence, not on January 6 and not for any time in the future,” the attorneys wrote in pre-trial filings.

Tyranny has risen throughout the federal government and the corrupt, perverted legal system. Mr. Barnett is no threat to We, the People. At worst he should have been sentenced to 100 hours of community service assisting elderly folks or cleaning up parks after the trashy, slovenly Antifa-type hoodlums or BLM slobs made a mess of a public area.

Patriots across the USA are disgusted with the traitors filling Congress and other parts of governance including the judiciary. Far too many are loyal to their elite-class moneyed masters and/or monolithic corporations that reward with high-paying jobs after the traitor lackeys leave office or position.

Is the need for Revolutionary War Two growing more urgent daily?
