WASHINGTON (CBSNEWS/AP) – Most of the approximately 230 protesters arrested on Inauguration Day will be charged with felony rioting, federal prosecutors said.
The U.S. Attorney’s Office said the offense is punishable by up to 10 years in prison and a fine of up to $250,000. The office said most of those arrested will be released without having to post bail and must return to court in February.

Fixed it for ya. :-)
“But Soros told us to have fun.”
Its unfortunate they let them go withoiut bail, But at least they are finally charging them. its about time these liberal brownshirts were thrown in jail where they belong.
Terrible charge to show up on a background check for a job. Oh wait
Sheldon’s Somatotype Theory may have been right. Studies of leftist physiognomy should be re-opened. Leftist’s all look the same; i.e. skinny, mouth wide with rage, copious amounts of saliva flowing down their chins, smashing windows, labeled as “peaceful protesters,” marching, getting free money, food, rent, medical care. Never really prosecuted etc. etc.
Good News keeps happening.
Wonder how many of these bad actors have outstanding student loans?
A significantly different attitude in DC now.
Well, “they” appear to be two different groups. Trump’s U.S. Attorney’s offices threw the book and them, and “a judge” (no name given, but presumably an obamanoid) let them all go. I imagine by this time they are all out of town.
If they don’t show up for their court date then there will be warrants for their arrest. The new AG needs to make sure that those who run riot in masks and destroy property and injure police will be prosecuted as felons and end up with records that will follow them forever. These aren’t peaceful protestors and the people who are paying them need to be charged also.
I guess destruction of private property isn’t going to be considered “free speech” any more. Good - lock ‘em up!
Under Trump, we CAN expect Law & Order, not racism and division as under Obama.
“If they dont show up for their court date then there will be warrants for their arrest.”
It’s UFAP and the US Marshalls come for you. Those folks do not screw around.
Screw ‘em if they can’t take a joke!
Here’s where the snowflakes can send their GoFundMe contributions....bail and 6 figure fines. You betcha.
Drugs.. brain dead... useless people. Kinda like the folks who kept Hitler in power... remember Germany after WWll?
If a few of these miscreants end up doing time, many more will reconsider destroying private or public property as a means of “free expression.”
I agree. For the past eight years, and for that matter decades before that, violent protests have been spreading, because the government does nothing against it, and even encourages it. Not much different under Bush than under Clinton and Obama. Bash in a few heads, burn cars, rob and burn stores, and you’re a HERO!
Now they’re going to discover that things are different.
