Alexander Sheppard: Powell, OH man who stormed U.S. Capitol in Jan. 6 attack getting early release [View all]

Powell man who stormed U.S. Capitol in Jan. 6 attack getting early release (Columbus Dispatch)

A Powell man convicted for his role in storming the U.S. Capitol on Jan. 6, 2021, is expected to be released from federal prison in early May while the U.S. Supreme Court determines whether the law he was convicted under is legally sound.

Alexander Sheppard, 24, had been serving a 19-month federal prison sentence after he was found guilty in January 2023 of multiple charges, including obstruction of an official proceeding. Sheppard was one of the first people to storm past police lines at the U.S. Capitol during the insurrection.

USA Today reported Tuesday that Sheppard will be released on May 2, according to an order filed by U.S. District Judge John Bates.
