Julian Khater admitted he deployed chemical spray on officers defending the U.S. Capitol, including Sicknick, who died the following day. George Tanios also pleaded guilty in the attack. His charges carry a maximum sentence of 20 years behind bars, but federal guidelines negotiated with prosecutors reduced his likely sentence to between 78 and 97 months — a range, if given, that would still be among the longest prison terms so far for a Capitol rioter.
