A St. Marys man, as part of a plea agreement, pleaded guilty via videoconference Wednesday in federal court to a misdemeanor linked to the Jan. 6 riot at the U.S. Capitol in Washington, D.C.
Mark Roger Rebegila pleaded guilty to parading, demonstrating or picketing in a capitol building, according to U.S. District Court records.
The crime carries a maximum sentence of six months imprisonment and a fine of up to $5,000, a court document said. Rebegila's age isn't listed in court documents. His sentencing was set for March 10.
As part of the agreement, prosecutors dropped charges Rebegila faced of violent entry and disorderly conduct on Capitol grounds; disorderly and disruptive conduct in a restricted building; and knowingly entering or remaining in a restricted building or grounds without lawful authority.
The complaint in the case against him said the FBI on Jan. 15 questioned Rebegila at his home, where he acknowledged he approached and entered the Capitol as crowds were entering the building after others pushed down barriers.
Rebegila's age isn't listed in court documents.
Federal prosecutors continue to pursue separate, unresolved charges linked to the riot against Topekan Will Pope.
