In Jan 6 Case, Bustle Duo Get 2 Years Probation From Judge Hogan Citing Social Media Posts

By Matthew Russell Lee, Patreon Podcast Song
BBC - Guardian UK - Honduras - ESPN

FEDERAL COURT, August 4 -- Nearly five months after the January 6 events in Washington, on June 14 DDC Judge Thomas F. Hogan held a guilty plea proceeding for two defendants, and said he'd sentence them in four to six weeks. Inner City Press live tweeted it, thread here.

Now on August 4, this was Judge Hogan at sentencing, also live tweeted by Inner City Press, here (and podcast here)

Judge Hogan: They were there at an anti-vaccine protest, in a different place. They came on later to the Capitol. They came to the riot, and it was a riot. People died. Yesterday another Capitol Police officer committed suicide.

Judge Hogan: This case is unique, though. They went in after the riot had begun... No prior criminal record, a mechanic, then into real estate business which he has lost as a result of this charge. Now they have notoriety. There's separation from family.

Judge Hogan: Mr. Bustle has worked all his life, since a teenager. Ms. Bustle was employed. But as to the nature of the sentence, this is a misdemeanor, a Class B. The maximum sentence is six months

 Judge Hogan: The nature of the attack was unique in the history of this country. The last time was the War of 1812, British burned it. In this case, a group of individuals misled by false claims of a fraudulent election tried to take the law into their own hands Judge Hogan: Some have suggested there should be a matrix on how to sentence these cases.  Voice: The judge's feed has frozen.

Judge Hogan [he's back] .. there were signs of damage in the area. Windows were smashed... Individuals have to be treated individually. In this case, a probationary sentence should not become the default. I considered giving time, but this is not the case.

 Judge Hogan: I am going to sentence Mr. Bustle... Joshua Bustle is sentenced to 24 months probation, 30 days home confinement. 40 hours community service.

Judge Hogan: Home confinement means you can only go out for work, religious services and the like.  Tim Anderson for Mr. Bustle: Mr. Bustle and his wife are moving to South Carolina, the movers are coming August 14. So we ask for a delay in home confinement.

Judge Hogan: Now Ms. Bustle. I think you should be entitled to probation, despite your posts on social media. You having to move is substantial punishment. I believe you have remorse. I considered putting you in jail, because your statements concern the court.

 Judge Hogan: Your statements about patriots are so misguided. Patriots do not attack operations of Congress and attempt to stop them. I sentence you to two years probation, home confinement of 60 days, your actions were more serious than your husband's. Judge Hogan: Restitution to the Department of Treasury of $500, $200 a month until paid. Also community service, same length as your husband's. I'm not going to lecture you on your vaccine status...  [Elsewhere in DDC: In Jan 6 Case Proud Boy Goodwyn Faces Arrest For Refusing Mask and Vaccine DDC Judge Walton asked Goodwyn if he has a medical degree

 Judge Hogan: Home confinement begins on Sept 1, in South Carolina. Adjourned.

We will have more on this.
