Washington (WSPA) – Anderson’s man pleaded guilty to two felony charges on Thursday in connection with the January 6 parliamentary riots.

35-year-old George Amos Tenney, III, pleaded guilty to civil confusion and obstruction of formal proceedings.

According to court documents, Tenney planned to travel to Washington in December 2020 and posted it on Facebook, saying, “If voters’ votes go wrong, it looks like they could siege the capital’s buildings and parliament. I’m starting. “

According to the US law firm, Tenney was the first rioter to enter the US Capitol and open the Rotanda Door to allow more riots inside.

Tenney also pushed and grabbed an employee of the Sergeant at Arms.

While in Rotunda, the US law firm said he shouted, “Get up, patriot, get up!”

Tenney also pushed out the Capitol police officers who were trying to close the doors to keep out other rioters.

George Tenney was arrested in Anderson on June 29, 2021.

He faces up to five years in prison for civil riots and up to 20 years in prison for sabotage. Tenney will be sentenced on October 20th.

A US law firm said more than 840 people were arrested in almost every 50 states for crimes related to the US Capitol breach. More than 250 people have been charged with assaulting or obstructing law enforcement.
