In Washington, D.C., a federal judge has sentenced the man who pepper-sprayed the late Capitol Police officer Brian Sicknick during the January 6 insurrection to 80 months in prison. Sicknick died of a stroke one day after the riot. Julian Khater, who pepper-sprayed three officers that day, had pleaded guilty to the charges. Another man, George Tanios, who traveled to D.C. with Khater and supplied the pepper spray, was sentenced to time served. Some 950 people have been charged in connection with the insurrection.
