Ex-lawmaker who let protesters in OR Capitol gets probation

SALEM, Ore. (AP) A former Oregon lawmaker who was expelled for letting violent, far-right protesters into the state Capitol pleaded guilty Tuesday to one count of official misconduct.

The Statesman Journal reports that Mike Nearman was sentenced to 18 months probation, during which he will need to complete 80 hours of community service and is banned from the Capitol building and grounds. He will also pay $200 in court fees and $2,700 to the Oregon Legislative Administration for damages done during the Dec. 21 riot.

The maximum penalty for the misdemeanor was one year in jail, a $6,250 fine or both.

As part of the agreement in Marion County Circuit Court, a count of criminal trespass was dismissed.

1. Of course he did, he is an older, white, rich dude who didn't have any priors.

Notice how they did not even charge him with terrorism related crimes or conspiracy. One fn misdemeanor.

Let this scumbag slide....he is banned from the capitol grounds.......oh no!

2. A relative slap on the wrist. I'm sure he's "learned his lesson," though

......Right?
