Glen Mitchell Simon of Georgia pleaded guilty in October to a misdemeanor for participating in the January 6, 2021, Capitol riot, but prosecutors have asked for a delay in his sentencing in light of new evidence.
Court documents do not specify what the new evidence is. His sentencing has been rescheduled from February 18 to sometime between March 14 and 23.
Simon originally pleaded guilty to one misdemeanor of demonstrating in the Capitol building. Though he said he was let in by other protesters, one of his Facebook posts provided evidence to the contrary, the Atlanta Journal-Constitution reported.
“Feel like I took about 50 bong rips of pepper spray today,” Simon wrote in the caption to a photo of him with someone in an eagle mask. “Post victory picture after the ramming through of the capital (sic) building.”
