Two people from New Castle arrested on charges after the January 6 riot at the U.S. Capitol have been sentenced.

According to online federal court records, Philip Vogel, II (AKA Flip) was sentenced on Friday to 30 days in jail followed by one year of supervised release.  Co-defendant Debra Maimone was sentenced to two years probation.  Each was ordered to make $1,806 restitution.

Both were originally charged with theft of property, knowingly entering or remaining in any restricted building or grounds without lawful authority as well as violent entry and disorderly conduct on Capitol grounds.

Through a plea agreement, Vogel and Mamione were convicted of aiding and abetting the theft of U.S. property.

Security video taken during the January 6th incursion at the Capitol showed Maimone putting personal protective equipment -- specifically a gas mask -- into Vogel's backpack. Maimone then helped another protester put a gas mask in his backpack, the criminal complaint states. 

Around four minutes later, the security video showed Vogel and Maimone picking up a bag clearly marked "police" and taking "silver packages" from it, according to the criminal complaint.

U.S. Capitol police say the "silver packages" contain escape hoods, which are a form of personal protective equipment designed to protect a person from chemical agents, biological agents, nuclear or radiological particles, and toxic industrial chemicals for a short period of time. 

Vogel wrote a letter to the judge apologizing for taking the gear.

 

The two are among 900 people who were charged in connection with the effort to stop Congress from certifying Joseph Biden as the winner in the race for President in 2020.
