The Ohio man who called himself “Pi Annon” and organized a caravan to Washington, D.C., has been sentenced for his role in the Jan. 6 attack on the U.S. Capitol building.

Kenneth Joseph Owen “Joe” Thomas, 41, of East Liverpool, was sentenced to 58 months in prison on Thursday. He was convicted in June of civil disorder, assaulting law enforcement, trespassing and disorderly conduct.

Thomas — who identified himself online and to reporters as “Pi Anon” or “Pi Annon” — was seen at around 3:30 that day charging a police line trying to hold back the violent mob of Donald Trump supporters that swarmed the Capitol as Congress met to certify Joe Biden’s 2020 electoral win. When the crowd on the Upper West Terrace surged forward, according to prosecutors, Thomas struck and shoved two Metropolitan Police Department officers with his hands.

Police body-worn camera footage recorded the assaults.
