A member of the United States Army who was sentenced to more than 3.5 years in prison on Friday for pepper spraying police officers at the United States Capitol on January 6 was re-enlisted in the service following the incident. 

After the insurrection, James Mault was fired from his job at the union, but he was still able to re-enlist in the United States Army. 

This was despite the fact that he had been interviewed by the FBI on January 6 regarding his actions. 

It would appear that the FBI was unaware of the fact that he assaulted officers earlier in the day when they conducted the first interview with him. 

Mault & his co-defendant, Cody Mattice, were both given their sentences by Chief Judge Beryl Howell. 

Both of them received a sentence of 44 months in prison, in addition to three years of parole supervision. According to Howell, Mault & Mattice had planned the act of violence in advance.

Howell asserted that individuals in question were not loyal citizens on January 6th. "None of the individuals who breached police lines on that day were. 

They were of the criminal mind. In October, Mault was taken into custody by the FBI after it was discovered that he had been caught on tape attacking law enforcement officers.

Mault was working as a member of an artillery cannon crew when he was arrested at Fort Bragg in North Carolina. 

He later pleaded guilty to the charges against him.Mault, who was in tears as he addressed the judge prior to being sentenced, said that the police officers in question "did not deserve what happened to them."
