Bob's Burgers Actor Sentenced For His Role in January 6th

Things got a little heated on Monday for an actor who appeared on “Bob’s Burgers" thanks to his participation in the January 6th insurrection. 

Jay Johnston pleaded guilty on Monday to a felony charge of civil disorder for interfering with police officers trying to protect the U.S. Capitol on January 6th,  The Associated Press reported.   

Video footage from the insurrection shows Johnston, who had also appeared on "Arrested Development," making a huge mistake. Johnston can be seen pushing against the officers while helping his fellow rioters who attacked the police guarding an entrance to the Capitol in a tunnel on the Lower West Terrace, according to an FBI agent’s affidavit.

Johnston was also seen holding a stolen police shield over his head and passing it to other rioters during the attack, according to the affidavit.

He was "banned" from "Bob's Burgers," where he voiced the fan favorite character of Jimmy Pesto, a pizzeria owner, after it was revealed he had stormed the Capitol, as first reported by The Daily Beast

Johnston, who was arrested last June, is scheduled to be sentenced on October 7th. He faces a maximum sentence of five years in prison. While sentencing guidelines recommended eight months to 14 months, many of the other 1400 January 6th defendants have received far harsher punishments than that.

Also on Monday another January 6th rioter,  Dana Jean Bell of Texas, pleaded guilty to assaulting a Metropolitan Police Department officer during the insurrection.

Like Johnston, Bell was caught on camera. She can be seen and heard cursing at officers inside the Capitol and grabbing an officer’s baton, according to an FBI agent’s affidavit.  

She faces a maximum sentence of eight years in prison. That's what you call "comeuppance," Jay Johnston.
