A Delaware man who stormed the U.S. Capitol on Jan. 6, 2021, with his father was just sentenced to two years in prison. You'll likely remember Hunter Seefried's father, Kevin, who held a Confederate flag while walking around the Capitol after they gained entrance after Proud Boy Dominic Pezzola used a police shield to shatter a Capitol window. Confederate flags have never been featured before in the Capitol in the history of the U.S. -- until Jan. 6.

Kyle Cheney of Politico reports that the younger Seefried was 21 when he stormed the Capitol with his old racist Confederate flag-humping dad.

Hunter Seefried said he was deeply sorry for getting caught and ashamed of his actions on Jan. 6 and claimed that he asked himself every day how he came to participate “in a day that will forever represent a stain on the character of our country.”

After Hunter serves his prison term, he will be placed on one year of supervised release. According to the Department of Justice, he also must pay $2,000 in restitution.
