Insurrectionist Facing Twelve-Year Prison Sentence Requests Second Chance at Sentencing Hearing

New Jersey Man Sentenced to 12 Years in Prison for Capitol Riot

Christopher Joseph Quaglin, a resident of North Brunswick, New Jersey, faced a judge acting as a jury and was found guilty of 14 charges, 12 of them felonies related to violent acts, which included assaulting and injuring police officers during the breach of the U.S. Capitol on Jan. 6.

During the sentencing, Judge McFadden criticized Quaglin for his lack of remorse and condemned his “shocking and lawless” behavior on that fateful day. Unlike other defendants who got swept up in events, Quaglin showed clear intent and premeditation in his actions.

Background and Sentencing Details

Quaglin, aged 37, received a 144-month prison sentence, 24 months of supervised release, and a $2,000 restitution order from U.S. District Judge Trevor N. McFadden. The court’s decision was based on Quaglin’s involvement in disrupting a joint session of Congress convened to certify the electoral college votes.

Evidence presented during the trial revealed Quaglin’s social media posts outlining his intentions to participate in what he described as a “CIVIL WAR!” in Washington, D.C. He encouraged others to arm themselves and resist what he perceived as a tyrannical government.

On the day of the Capitol breach, Quaglin actively engaged in violent behavior, assaulting officers and actively participating in the mob’s actions. Despite the court’s judgment, Quaglin displayed no regrets for his actions, instead choosing to deny responsibility and spread misinformation about the events of Jan. 6.
