WASHINGTON — A Jan. 6 rioter who ripped at an officer's gas mask during the brutal battle in the lower west tunnel leading into the Capitol was sentenced to more than seven years in federal prison on Friday.

Steven Cappuccio was sentenced to 85 months in prison during a sentencing hearing before U.S. District Judge Trevor McFadden, a Donald Trump appointee.

The government had sought more than 10 years in federal prison, saying the "sadistic cruelty" of Cappuccio's attack on Officer Daniel Hodges warranted a lengthy sentence.

“How do you like me now, mother f---er?" Cappuccio screamed during the attack. “How do you like me now, f---er?!” He stuck his phone in his mouth, video presented at trial shows, so he could use both hands to attack Hodges. Hodges had to seek medical attention after the attack and had an MRI; footage of the attack on him in the Capitol tunnel played prominently in the Jan. 6 Committee's public hearings.
