Jon Schaffer is freed from detention


After almost three months in custody and a plea bargain he made with the authorities to uncover information about the U.S. Capitol riot, Jon Schaffer was released on April 16, according to Metal Sucks.

Schaffer has been in custody since Jan. 17 in Marion County, Indiana and then in Washington. Although he was released, he will be monitored by the authorities and will be summoned by the court to announce his sentence.

Below you can see a video, taken by News Nation Now journalist Alex Rhoades, in which he appears to be leaving the court while a woman is waiting for him. The couple hurries away while not paying attention to the journalist who follows them trying to ask Schaffer questions.

For the record we should mention that Schaffer entered a guilty plea for two of the six charges against him, those of “Obstruction of an Official Proceeding” and “Entering and Remaining in a Restricted Building or Grounds with a Deadly or Dangerous Weapon.” The combined sentenced for those is approximately 30 years, but Schaffer might serve up to 4 and a half, depending on the level of his cooperation.
