WASHINGTON — A woman from Bloomfield will spend 14 days in prison for her participation in the Jan. 6 riot at the U.S. Capitol.

Dona Bissey, 52, was also ordered by a federal judge to pay a $500 fine and perform 60 hours of community service, according to The Tribune-Star.

U.S. District Judge Tanya Chutkan stressed she gave Bissey such a sentence because Bissey celebrated and bragged about her participation in the events of Jan. 6.

Bissey pleaded guilty in July to a misdemeanor charge of parading, demonstrating, or picketing in a Capitol building.

Bissey will be allowed to turn herself in to the Bureau of Prisons at the start of 2022. She must complete her community service by the end of next year.
