MAGA rioter was fired from five jobs last year for 'unwillingness to comply with mask and vaccine mandates': feds
Federal prosecutors are claiming that MAGA rioter Jeremiah Caplinger has repeatedly flouted his pre-trial release conditions and has overall shown "lack of contrition and respect for the rule of law."
In a new filing flagged by CBS News' Scott MacFarlane, prosecutors argue that Caplinger should get three months prison for storming the Capitol, and they said that he has shown a lack of remorse and a pattern of irresponsibility that warrant a short incarceration sentence.
Among other things, they note that Caplinger "has been terminated from five jobs in the past year due to his unwillingness to comply with mask and vaccine mandates."
Additionally, prosecutors say that Caplinger has violated his pre-trial release terms by failing multiple drug tests while under supervision.
"In fact, in the nine months Caplinger has been under supervision, he has only passed his required drug test twice," prosecutors claim. "The court has admonished the defendant, to little avail... Caplinger twice tested positive for marijuana after the Court's most recent rebuke."
Caplinger, a resident of Michigan who pleaded guilty to a misdemeanor last year, is due to be sentenced on February 1st.

In a filing in Los Angeles Superior Court on Monday, the attorneys said the claim by Mamie Mitchell should be thrown out because there was no evidence that Baldwin or any of the producers intended harm. Baldwin was the lead actor and a producer of the independent film, a Western.
"Despite Plaintiff’s attempt to label claims as intentional, nothing about Plaintiff’s allegations suggest that any of Defendants intentionally committed harmful conduct," the filing said.
Mitchell claimed in a lawsuit filed in November that Baldwin should have checked the Colt .45 revolver he was holding to make sure it did not include live ammunition. Baldwin has said the assistant director told him the gun was "cold," or safe to use and that he did not pull the trigger Mitchell, who said she was in the line of fire, alleges assault, intentional infliction of emotional distress, and deliberate infliction of harm and is seeking unspecified damages in the lawsuit filed in Los Angeles Superior Court.
Cinematographer Halyna Hutchins was killed and director Joel Souza was wounded when the gun discharged as Baldwin was rehearing on the New Mexico film set.
Mitchell, who said she was in the line of fire, alleges assault, intentional infliction of emotional distress, and deliberate infliction of harm, and is seeking unspecified damages in the lawsuit filed in Los Angeles Superior Court.
Gloria Allred, Mitchell's attorney, said on Tuesday that the claim should be allowed to proceed.
The producers are "trying to avoid explaining their conduct before a judge and a jury in a court of law," she said in a statement.
