Paul Hodgkin, a crane operator has pleaded guilty of taking part in the US capitol riots that happened in January of 2021. 

The 38 year old Florida man entered the senate chamber carrying a “Trump 2020” flag and wearing a Trump T-shirt.  Along with Hodgkin, more than 450 people of Tampa are charged in the riot.  

On January 6, a flock of Trump supporters stormed into the Capitol and temporarily suspended Joe Biden’s lawmakers’ certification as the winner of last November’s presidential election. 

Although Hodgkin was facing five charges, his lawyers were able to negotiate the number of charges down to one.

 The provision for obstructing an official proceeding of Congress is 20 years of prison sentence, but Paul has been recommended 15- 20 months of prison time along with $2,000 in damage. Damage caused during the Capitol Riots in January is estimated to be around $1.5m.

Paul Hodgkin’s plea comes just after a day of abandoning the criminal charges against Christopher M Kelly. Kelly is the first defendant whose charges of capitol riot has been abandoned.

Ryan Schaffer, a heavy metal guitarist was the first person to plead guilty for the Capitol Riots.
