As per Thursday’s report from the Bureau of Prisons, Chansley has been shifted from federal prison to a halfway house, located in Phoenix, Arizona.
Chansley pleaded guilty to violent entry into the Capitol and civil disorder in September 2021.
Chansley and his lawyer also handed over a signed statement, in which they claimed that Chansley got inside the Capitol by using a broken door, which he “was not lawfully authorized to enter or remain in the building,” and that he “entered the Gallery of the Senate alone.”
A couple of weeks ago, the GOP House Speaker, Kevin McCarthy, issued tens of thousands of hours of raw footage of the Jan. 6 riot to Fox News host Tucker Carlson, which he aired in segments, only the detailed portions of the footage.
That footage was the opposite of the claims that Chansley got inside the Capitol violently and then headed to the gallery all alone.
The footage also showed that the Capitol police officials were escorting Chansley all the time he spent inside the Capitol.
Chansley was also seen praying for the police officials who permitted him to enter “this building.”
A couple of weeks after the release of the footage to the public by Tucker Carlson, Chansley is now set free from prison after a period of 27 months, out of which he spent 11 in solitary confinement.
His lawyer Albert S. Watkins applauded the judgment to set free Chansley, who was penalized to be in prison for 3 and a half years.
“After serving eleven months in solitary prior to his sentence being imposed, and only 16 months of his sentence thereafter, it is appropriate this gentle and intelligent young man be permitted to move forward with the next stage of what undoubtedly will be a law abiding and enriching life,”
