Summary

Joshua Bustle (circled left) and Jessica Bustle (circled right) inside the US Capitol on Jan. 6, according to charging papersWASHINGTON — A Virginia couple pleaded guilty on Monday to a single misdemeanor for participating in the Jan. 6 insurrection at the US Capitol, becoming the first defendants to cut a deal that carries minimal, if any, jail time.Jessica and Joshua Bustle pleaded guilty to one count of “parading, demonstrating, or picketing” inside the Capitol, a charge with a maximum sentence of six months in jail. They were each facing four misdemeanor counts, including illegally entering the Capitol and disorderly conduct, which carry up to a year behind bars, but the government agreed to drop the rest of the charges as part of the agreement.Lawyers for the Bustles told BuzzFeed News after the hearing that they planned to argue for no jail time for their clients, noting their lack of previous criminal history and the fact that they weren’t accused of preplanned violence or property destruction on Jan. 6.
