Driving the news: Douglas Austin Jensen, of Iowa, was one of the first people to breach the Capitol during the insurrection on Jan. 6, 2021, as then-President Trump's followers sought to block the certification of the 2020 election results.
Catch up fast: Jensen led a mob toward United States Capitol Police officer Eugene Goodman in a "menacing manner," federal officials said. Goodman stood his ground and sought to divert rioters from the Senate chambers while lawmakers were still being evacuated.
The other side: Far from confused, prosecutors said Jensen "was the rioter who would not back down” and said he was “weaponizing that mob” when he refused to heed police commands to stand down.
Background: After spending six months in a D.C. jail, Jensen was released in July to await trial while under a strict form of home detention.
By the numbers: More than 850 people have been arrested for their actions on Jan. 6. Jensen joins the ranks of more than 350 people who have been convicted in connection with the Capitol riot, per NBC news.
