Jon Schaffer, guitarist and founder of such bands as Iced Earth, Demons & Wizards and Sons Of Liberty, has pled guilty to obstruction of an official proceeding and entering a building with a dangerous weapon, after admitting to carrying bear mace while inside Capitol Hill on January 6th of this year. The musician had been speaking with federal investigators in recent weeks and his lawyers, as well as the prosecutors have recommended a stay in prison between 3.5 and 4.5 years.

It's possible that Schaffer will be in court again soon in other cases, as his plea deal means he may testify against other rioters. More details will be revealed as soon as they become available.

He should have wore a BLM shirt and he wouldn’t have got any punishment.

Yes, that's it. Wear the "opposition's" logo to place the blame on someone else instead of owning up.

Quit covering for traitors, chucklef***.

I agree with BoltThrower. Had he been Antifa or BLM he would have already been freed and probably given a big paycheck to boot. It just came out that Pelosi told police to stand down. There's plenty of video of police waving them in. Unless Jon did something pretty horrific I can't see why he'd plead. Unless he just wants this whole nightmare over with. I don't blame him. I just don't see where the gov has a legitimate case against anyone. I think this is a poor decision on his legal defense. Serve your time and leave the country as soon as you can. I'd recommend Poland or Hungary.

Oh and blue anon person down there.......don't even bother typing a word of your rubbish to me.
