A Connecticut woman who stormed the U.S. Capitol during the January 2021 insurrection has been sentenced to five weekends in jail, 60 days of home confinement and a $2,500 fine, while her daughter will serve 90 days of home confinement.

Jean Lavin and her 20-year-old daughter, Carla Krzywicki, were sentenced Friday by a federal judge in Washington. Both pleaded guilty in January to a misdemeanor charge of parading, demonstrating or picketing in a Capitol building.

The Canterbury, Connecticut, residents also will serve three years of probation and pay restitution of $500 to help pay for damage done to the Capitol during the riot.
