Realtor Jenna Ryan released from prison after serving 60-day sentence



FRISCO, TX– The real estate broker Jennifer “Jenna” Ryan, 51, is released from prison after serving 60 days after she was arrested for her participation in the U.S. Capitol riot on Jan. 6, 2021.

She went to Washington, D.C. on a private plane to livestream the events at the Capitol and promote her business. There she admitted she “paraded, demonstrated, or picketed” inside the nation’s Capitol and was ordered to pay a $1,000 fine.

Upon receiving her sentence in November, she tweeted, “I’m just gonna make a blanket statement to all the people that are calling me and texting me. You win!!! I’m going to prison. So you don’t need to contact me anymore. Pop champagne and then rejoice. But just leave me alone. Thank you.”

She pled guilty to one of four charges and turned herself in to the FBI on January 15.

She was charged for entering and remaining in a restricted building, disorderly and disruptive conduct in a restricted building, violent entry and disorderly conduct in a Capitol building and parading, demonstrating or picketing in a Capitol building. As part of a plea deal, she pled guilty to the charge of parading, demonstrating or picketing in a Capitol building — a misdemeanor.

Ryan had faced a maximum penalty of six months in prison and a fine of up to $5,000.
