PHOENIX — Jacob Chansley, the self-described QAnon Shaman, is facing a potential 51 months in prison for taking part in the January 6 attack on the U.S. Capitol.
Outfitted with his spear, horns and fur, Chansley, who lives in Phoenix, was among the most recognizable participants in the riot.
In September, he pleaded guilty to obstruction of an official proceeding.
Prosecutors are asking for the stiffest penalty under federal sentencing guidelines — from 41 to 51 months.
Court documents reveal Chansley repeatedly refused to listen to police officers’ commands inside the Capitol and his brandishing of a spear-tipped flagpole.
Chansley’s attorneys have not yet submitted a sentencing recommendation with the court.
His sentencing is set for November 17.
