Former Marine One Helicopter Crew Member for President Bush and Disabled Veteran Gets One Year in Prison for Walking Inside US Capitol on Jan. 6 – PLEASE DONATE BELOW

UPDATE – Donation link fixed.

Former Marine One helicopter crew member John D. Andries was sentenced to one year in prison for climbing through a window and walking through the US Capitol on January 6, 2021 following the stolen 2020 election.

Andries served on Marine One during the George W. Bush presidency.

John Andries was a good enough man to fly with the US President but today he is treated worse than a violent criminal in Washington DC.

John Andries committed no violence on January 6. But will serve one year in prison.

John Andries says this on his GiveSendGo page: “My very presence at the Capitol on January 6 has made it difficult to find an attorney related to my custody case. I am suffering from mental health issues related to the January 6 events as well as a custody battle and RR Multiple Sclerosis. I live alone with my pup and cat and just want to live peacefully. I have outstanding hospital bills as well as other financial pains. My only running vehicle is a 1988 chevy truck that is rusting apart. I’m just looking for help.”

Raw Story reported.

John D. Andries, 37, of Piney Point, Maryland, had pleaded guilty last August 23 to a felony count of obstruction of an official proceeding. In addition to the prison term, U.S. District Court Judge Rudolph Contreras ordered $2,000 restitution and three years of supervised release, the Department of Justice reported.

Andries arrest had drawn extra attention in 2021 after CNN had obtained records showing that “he served in the Marine Corps from 2004 to 2009 and was assigned to the Marine Helicopter Squadron One, the unit responsible for transporting the president, Raw Story reported in March, 2021. He was listed as a helicopter crew chief, but not a pilot, on Marine One.

“Andries illegally entered the Capitol Building through a broken window near the Senate Wing Door at approximately 2:15 p.m., just two minutes after rioters’ initial breach at that location,” the DOJ reported. “Once inside, he proceeded to the Crypt and was among rioters who attempted to push past U.S. Capitol Police officers. Eventually he and others were able to surge forward past the officers and further into the building.”
