Frisco, Texas, real estate agent Jenna Ryan, who notoriously tweeted that her blond hair and white skin would absolve her from serving jail time for her participation in the Jan. 6 Capitol riots, was sentenced to 60 days. 

Months after the riot, Ryan tweeted that she was "definitely not going to jail."

"Sorry I have blonde hair white skin a great job a great future and I'm not going to jail. Sorry to rain on your hater parade. I did nothing wrong," she wrote. 

On Aug. 19, Ryan pleaded guilty to a misdemeanor that included one count of parading, picketing or demonstrating at the Capitol building. Initially, she was facing six months in prison, but will serve a shorter 60-day sentence at the start of 2022. In addition, she must pay a $1,000 fine and $500 in restitution, based on her Nov. 4 sentencing hearing.

U.S. District Judge Christopher Cooper was determined to ensure that such events would never happen again, saying, "I think the sentence should show them we're taking it seriously," according to The Washington Post.

"You knew it when you walked out of your hotel room and, and said, 'We're going to war and we're going to be breaking windows,'" Cooper told Ryan. 

Ryan flew on a private jet from Texas to Washington, D.C., with several friends, including Jason Hyland and Katherine Schwab, who were also charged for riots at the Capitol that took place after the "Stop the Steal" rally. While at the Capitol, Ryan blasted through the entrance of the building along with other members of the mob, but she said she was only within the building for a few minutes before leaving.

She filmed herself in front of the crowd supporting the attack and even took a picture posing next to a broken window with the caption, "Window at The capital [sic]. And if the news doesn't stop lying about us we're going to come after their studios next…" Her attorney asserts that she didn't cause any destruction of property, nor did she galvanize the crowd to commit violence. 

Ryan feels she is the victim of a "smear campaign" that contributed to her sentencing rather than the photos she took and her thread of boastful tweets, including one that read, “I’m not going to prison for the things that I said, or standing in front of the broken window. It's for walking in Capitol for 2 mins & what the judge says is to serve a deterrence to others since I have a high profile (Which I got after the facts thanks to MSM smear campaign).”

When speaking to The Washington Post in February, Ryan took a different stance.

"I bought into a lie, and the lie is the lie, and it’s embarrassing,” she said.

“I regret everything. … Not one patriot is standing up for me. … I’m a complete villain. I was down there based on what my president said: ‘Stop the steal.’ Now I see that it was all over nothing. He was just having us down there for an ego boost. I was there for him.”

Ryan's apparent remorse was met by intense criticism by those who felt she continued to parrot the sentiments of Trump by advancing the notion of a stolen election.
