Jennifer Leigh Ryan is the Texas realtor who participated in the Jan. 6 riot at the Capitol. She later famously boasted that she'd never be sent to jail. Turns out she was very wrong and was just sentenced to 60 days in jail which she will serve. Ryan made no secret of her participation, posting multiple photos of herself on social media and proclaiming it "one of the best days of my life." Her attorney maintains that she spent only two minutes in the Capitol building, but Ryan apparently didn't help her own case with a tweet to her critics on March 26 when she wrote: "Definitely not going to jail!" She continued, "Sorry I have blonde hair white skin a great job a great future and I'm not going to jail. Sorry to rain on your hater parade. I did nothing wrong." Previously, Ryan publicly requested a pardon from former President Trump but that plea apparently fell on deaf ears. She is expected to begin her sentence in January right after the holidays.
