Southwest Washington father and son set to accept plea deals during Jan. 6 riot

Jeremy Grace and his father, Jeffery Grace, face charges for their alleged involvement in the attack on the US Capitol on January 6.


A father and son in southwest Washington are set to accept plea deals with federal prosecutors for entering the US Capitol with a pro-Trump crowd during the deadly Jan. 6 uprising.

Jeff and Jeremy Grace appeared in selfie photos inside and outside the Capitol building during the insurgency, prosecutors say.

Jeremy Grace pleaded guilty in April to one count of entering and staying in a building or restricted area, KGW-TV reported. As part of the plea deal, federal prosecutors agreed to drop three additional counts.

He will likely receive a sentence of zero to six months in prison in July, as well as a fine of $500 to $9,500, according to court records. Court records show that Jeremy Grace also agreed to allow federal agents to examine his social media accounts around this time.

Grace’s father, Jeff, is scheduled for a plea hearing on June 17. He faces similar charges.

KGW could not reach Jeff or Jeremy Grace for comment.

The Justice Department arrested and charged more than 800 people for the violence that day, the largest net in its history.

The House committee investigating the attack will make its findings public beginning Thursday night as lawmakers hope to show the American public how democracy came close to being on the brink when defeated President Donald Trump attempted to overturn Joe Biden’s election victory.
