  • IVEY FROM CROSSVILLE ENTERS GUILTY PLEA STEMMING FROM U.S CAPITOL DEMONSTRATION

Taking her remorse into account, prosecutors recommended three years of probation for Morgan-Lloyd, on condition she complete community service requirements and pay $500 in damages.

Morgan-Lloyd said she was ashamed of the violence that occurred. A client at her hair salon told FBI investigators that she "regularly spoke supportively of QAnon and other conspiracy theories", according to court documents.

She added that she felt "ashamed that something meant to show support for the President had turned violent". "For that, I am sorry and take responsibility". In one, she gushed, "It was a day I'll remember forever". She said that she and her friend "were in the first 50 people in".

Before receiving her sentence, Morgan-Lloyd tearfully apologized to the court for participating in what she called a "disgraceful" day.

"At first it didn't dawn on me, but later I realized that if every person like me, who wasn't violent, was removed from that crowd, the ones who were violent may have lost the nerve to do what they did", she wrote.

Threatening Flash Flooding Rises in Claudette's Path
Strong southerly winds will cause minor water level rises late Sunday through Monday morning for areas south of Cape Hatteras. In Alabama's Escambia County, a tornado triggered by Claudette ripped apart at least 50 mobile homes, according to Gov.

Morgan-Lloyd first came to the attention of authorities in January when she applied for a gun permit just weeks after the riot, and an employee at the local sheriff's office recognized her while processing the application.

Her lawyer said "she does not intend or expect to ever again break the law".

"I don't want to create the impression that probation is the automatic outcome here, because it's not going to be", Judge Lamberth said. "This wasn't a peaceful demonstration".

In a letter to the judge, the defendant said "It was never my intent to help empower people to act violently".

"Though she supported the past president in January, she totally accepts President Biden as the leader of our country", said her lawyer, Heather Shaner of Washington, D.C. "We couldn't argue with it", Morgan-Lloyd said in the letter. "People of all colors should feel as safe as I do to walk down the street". In another post she said, "That was the most exciting day of my life". "However. [Morgan-Lloyd's] seeming prior bravado. appears to have been tempered by a realization of the consequences of her actions". Dozens of accused rioters are in early plea discussions, according to prosecutors, with almost a dozen rioters having pleaded guilty to charges so far. Earlier in the day on January 6, Trump held a rally and suggested that attendees march to the Capitol and "show strength". No one who participated in the breach has been charged with insurrection.
