PITTSBURGH (KDKA) – A Sharpsville man has pleaded guilty to his role in the January 6 Capitol riots.
Matthew Perna pleaded guilty to obstructing Congress with one felony and three related misdemeanors, prosecutors announced Friday.
Perna attended the “Stop Theft” Rally on January 6, then marched to the Capitol, court papers said. Wearing a red “Make America Great Again” hoodie, court documents allege he entered through the Senate doors after barriers were breached.
He was in the Capitol for about 20 minutes, the prose writers said. Perna then posted an eight-minute video on her Facebook account saying: “It’s not over yet, believe me. The purpose of today is to expose Pence as a traitor,” according to court documents.
His co-defendant, Stephen Ayres from Warren, Ohio, is still pending him.
Perna’s is set on March 3, 2022. He faces 20 years in prison and a $250,000 fine and additional penalties for misdemeanors.
