Law & Crime reports:
A Pennsylvania mother of eight known as “Bullhorn Lady” since she was identified as a window-smasher and boastful obstructionist at the tip of the pro-Trump mob’s spear on Jan. 6, falsely believing her preferred candidate won the 2020 election, has been sentenced to serve over four years in prison for numerous crimes.
Rachel Marie Powell, now 43, was convicted months ago of all nine charges she faced following a May bench trial before Senior U.S. District Judge Royce Lamberth, a Ronald Reagan appointee. On Tuesday, Powell received 4.75 years in prison plus three years of supervised release, a $5,000 fine, and she must pay $2,753 in restitution.
Powell made news nationally after a detailed interview with Ronan Farrow was published in The New Yorker, in which she confirmed her bullhorn activities directing the mob on Jan. 6 while claiming she was trying to prevent people from dying.

Rachel Powell “Bullhorn Lady” has her J6 sentencing tomorrow and can’t believe the govt is asking for 8 years: “it doesn’t make any sense to me. It was a mistake and I’m sorry. I wish I could pay for (the window). I did break a window. I was on the violent side of the building.” pic.twitter.com/WCnxuCaKFP

“Even after January 6, Powell’s egregious conduct did not end; she advocated for additional violence and even after this Court convicted Powell for her actions, she did not express remorse.”
