WASHINGTON DC Former Wayne County Delegate Derrick Evans will face sentencing this week in connection with the January 6 riot on the U.S. Capitol.


Evans joined a Stop the Steal bus on January 5 and the next day streamed about 30 minutes of himself and others inside the Capitol, which he later deleted. That video has been at the center of this trial.


Evans pleaded guilty to a felony charge of civil disorder last week.


Evans’ attorney is asking for no jail time, but proposed restitution and probation.

Prosecutors are suggesting at least three months in jail, followed by three years of supervised release and $2,000 restitution for damages to the Capitol.


U.S. District Judge Royce Lamberth will decide what sentence is most appropriate during a 2:30 p.m. hearing this Wednesday in U.S. District Court for the District of Columbia.
