U.S. District Judge John Bates delivered this sentence on Wednesday, marking the culmination of Yvonne St Cyr’s trial in March, during which she was found guilty of two felony counts of civil disorder, as well as several misdemeanors.
Yvonne St Cyr, a defendant linked to the events of January 6, has been handed a 30-month federal prison sentence, along with 36 months of supervised release, and a $2,000 restitution fine to the Architect of the Capitol
In a surprising turn of events, Yvonne St Cyr expressed her belief that she had the right to access the Capitol even by climbing over shattered glass on the infamous January 6 day. However, her actions were deemed unlawful, leading to her conviction and eventual sentencing.
Post-trial, Yvonne St Cyr took to Facebook for a livestream, expressing uncertainty about the case’s progression to sentencing, as Yvonne St Cyr anticipated that “the truth” would emerge before reaching this stage.
The court’s decision has now been made
Nevertheless, the court’s decision has now been made, with Yvonne St Cyr facing a 2.5-year incarceration term, sending a message about the consequences of actions related to the Capitol breach.
This sentence underlines the judicial system’s commitment to upholding the law and ensuring accountability for those involved in the events of January 6, including Yvonne St Cyr.
