"She was sentenced to House arrest despite multiple term violations, and was permitted to go to the Renn Faire not once, but twice."

Hmm, I wonder white she was allowed to do that?

She’s not accused anymore - dead-eyed Methany is guilty.

It's a better headline.

From the article:

> PA Woman Accused Of Stealing Nancy Pelosi's Laptop At Jan. 6 Riot Sentenced

> Former Mechanicsburg/Harrisburg woman, Riley June Williams has been sentenced by U.S. District Court Judge Amy Berman Jackson on Thursday, March 23, 2023 after she was convicted on charges related to the Jan. 6 riot in the U.S. Capitol— infamously in connection with the theft of Nancy Pelosi's laptop.

> The 23-year-old had been charged with stealing a laptop from House Speaker Nancy Pelosi's office, entering a restricted building and other related offenses.

> Nearly two years ago, Oct. 19, 2021, Williams pleaded not guilty to all eight charges, but she was found guilty on six charges in connection with the theft of the Speaker of the House’s laptop among other charges in connection with the insurrection, on Nov. 21, 2022, according to court documents and multiple media outlets. 

> The jury could not come to a consensus on whether or not she "aided and abetted in the theft" of the laptop or if she "obstructed the certification of the presidential election," according to Scott MacFarlane, a CBS correspondent.

> And previously disputed evidence about her role in stealing a gavel and hardrive from Nancy Pelosi's office is now being permitted, according to court documents. 

> During the sentencing, Judge Jackson called her behavior on Jan. 6 "utterly reprehensible,” as NBC News reported.  Jackson sentenced Williams to three years confinement. 

> Notably, Williams was previously only under house arrest and despite multiple terms violations, she was permitted to go to the Pennsylvania Renaissance Faire, not once but twice.

She was allowed to go to the renaissance festival twice? Wow…

Awh… I like the Ren Faire. We have one of the best ones in the country.

I wonder what happened to thieves and insurrectionists in the renaissance?

*Looks that up on google*

Ohh my... Maybe she should stay in 2023.

She definitely looks like the Ren Faire type.


PGHNeil t1_jdhf6fq wrote

Yes, judging by the mug shot she definitely appears to be the "wench, fetcheth me thy mead" type.

Definitely the type that likes to live in the past


alternatingflan t1_jdjihu2 wrote

She needs JAIL - not this slap on the hands with a waggy no-no finger. And 2 trips to the renaissance fair? Why are there laws if they are not enforced?

Only 3 years jeesh

If she stole a laptop from bestbuy she'd do more time than swiping a laptop w national security implications. Wtf

No more Renn Faire? Bummer for her.....Rot in there.


CavemanUggah t1_jddyt2y wrote

She only got 3 years. Even if she serves all of it, it's basically a slap on the wrist.


King_Louis_X t1_jdep8xb wrote

Spending a full 3 years behind bars is not a slap on the wrist. That’s still a long ass time to not have your freedoms, plus it obviously follows you after you get out. If you think she should have gotten a longer sentence that’s one thing, but it’s certainly not a slap on the wrist.


CavemanUggah t1_jdestou wrote

Relative to how other crimes are prosecuted it is a slap on the wrist. There are people spending 25+ years in prison for possessing weed: a product that is natural, not harmful, and legal in many states.


King_Louis_X t1_jdev3zc wrote

That’s a bad comparison. 25 years for possession of weed is INSANE, and genuinely not really happening much anymore. I could go the other way and point to literal murderers and rapists receiving exactly zero time in jail. 3 years is really not a slap on the wrist.


StupiderIdjit t1_jdfldzt wrote

She tried to sell the Speaker's laptop to Russian spies.

It's absolutely a slap on the wrist.


King_Louis_X t1_jdfpino wrote

That wasn’t one of the charges she was convicted of.


StupiderIdjit t1_jdfppt4 wrote

That doesn't mean it didn't happen. Stop simping for traitors.


King_Louis_X t1_jdfsk4h wrote

Well then blame the plaintiff’s. Why didn’t they seek charges for that? Stop grandstanding about shit you clearly don’t understand


Otherwise_Comfort_95 t1_jdfnqla wrote

Nobody is doing 25 years for weed unless they were sentenced under the Biden crime bill of 1994

She openly admitted to her intent to sell the laptop to Russia, 3 years is a joke. Insane to watch these pieces of shit get light sentencing.

Bunch of traitors to the nation get light sentences. The minimum punishment for traitors used to be getting drawn and quartered, with the maximum being, drawn and quartered then having Your family holdings taken, and your family name stricken from history.

And this bitch just gets 3 years.

Obviously she deserves to get in trouble but holy shit look at all the people at the top (Democrat and republican) that do shady shit all the time and literally nothing is done. Kind of off putting the people that make the laws don't have to follow them.

If she was the person who stole it, sure


MumenriderPaulReed69 t1_jdeded5 wrote

Hunter didn’t have his stolen he was high and left it at a repair shop. After the shop own realized he had it for a certain amount of time he opened it up. Feel bad for the guy that looked at his laptop..


choptheair t1_jdeebpj wrote

Why do you feel bad? Because he got jealous of hunter’s big dong?


MumenriderPaulReed69 t1_jdeemxv wrote

No because he probably saw some sick shit on that computer…


raresanevoice t1_jdee4l4 wrote

So you agree it was stolen and the contest stolen and fabricated


MumenriderPaulReed69 t1_jdeej19 wrote

No. Hunter signed an agreement for have his property forfeited if he doesn’t pick it up over a certain amount of time. So no being high and leaving property to be forfeited at a repair shop. Get a grip dude


raresanevoice t1_jdeih02 wrote

You're kinda funny. It's weird to meet someone who drank that much of the kool-aid and totally lost their grip, yet here you are.


thedude213 t1_jdfwskm wrote

Tech repair shop guy here, what ever agreement your talking about doesn't exist. Shops defer to the local laws to determine when something is considered abandoned. But I don't think anyone is exactly surprised that you'd make something up to just be angry at it.

As an IT professional, that’s all sorts of ethics code violations….you don’t just open up someone’s laptop and you don’t go looking in files, especially if they don’t pertain to the scope of work that was asked to be done.

And if Hunter left it at this repair shop, wouldn’t there be attempts to contact him to have him get it back?

Besides, there’s so many holes in that story that it’s borderline laughable.
