Real Estate Market News and Opinions
Agent who marketed her business at Capitol riot pleads guilty in deal
THE NEWS: After storming the U.S. Capitol building, leveraging images from the insurrection to plug her real estate business, asking Donald Trump for a pardon in the waning days of his presidency, and tweeting defiantly that she was “definitely not going to jail,” Jenna Ryan has pleaded guilty. The Texas real estate agent pleaded guilty Thursday to demonstrating inside the Capitol building, a misdemeanor crime that comes with a $500 fine and a chance of landing up to six months in prison.
BEHIND THE NEWS: Ryan agreed to the plea in a deal with prosecutors, according to a report by CNN. The deal resembles those struck so far with “low-level defendants” who weren’t caught being violent or destructive that day in the halls of Congress.
Ryan’s case has drawn national attention in part for her attempt to use her participation in the day’s destructive protest to market her real estate business. “Y’all know who to hire for your Realtor,” she said on Jan. 6 while filming the chaotic mob from the Capitol steps. “Jenna Ryan: your Realtor.” —Daniel Houston/Inman
