Reporter Covering Inauguration Protests Now Faces 75 Years in Prison

Post by Guest on Sat Jun 10, 2017 7:40 am

In the first hours of Donald Trump’s presidency, Washington, D.C., police booked John Boswell and Aaron Cantú into jail. Boswell was a millionaire Trump supporter arrested after he sexually assaulted a maid in the hotel room he’d booked for the inauguration. Cantú was a journalist arrested while covering protesters outside the inaugural ceremonies. Boswell will serve no prison time for the sexual abuse, to which he pleaded guilty. Cantú faces up to 75 years in prison.

Protesters usually get time-served, and an estimated $55 fine, where there is no violence, property damage or looting. Very often, charges are simply dropped.

Reports, however, usually go to the upper end of the sentencing range, for purposes of sensationalism. DC prosecutors are not generally any stricter that any other prosecutors.
