Morganfield Woman Pleads Guilty for Actions in Jan. 6 Capitol Riot
Her husband pleaded not guilty
A western Kentucky woman has pleaded guilty in connection with the Jan. 6th riot at the U.S. Capitol. WNIN’s John Gibson reports:
43-year-old Shelly Stallings of Morganfield entered guilty pleas to seven federal charges, including assaulting, resisting or impeding law enforcement officers using a dangerous weapon.
Court records indicate Stallings and three co-defendants sprayed pepper-spray at police officers who were attempting to secure the Lower West Terrace of the capitol building.
Stallings was arrested in Owensboro about a month after the riot.
A news release says she could face up to 56 years in prison if a judge issues the maximum sentence on all counts.
Stallings’ husband, 49-year-old Peter Schwartz, pleaded not guilty to all charges.
