On Friday, Benjamin Drake Daley and Michael Miselis pleaded guilty for their roles in the “Unit The Right” rally Charlottesville, Va, reported The Los Angeles Times.

They can face up to five years in prison. The two men belong to a white nationalist group called the Rise Above Movement. They were charged with conspiring to riot.

“Benjamin Drake Daley, a founder of the so-called Rise Above Movement, and Michael Miselis, a member who worked as an aerospace engineer for Northrop Grumman, entered their pleas in a Charlottesville courtroom. They will face up to five years in federal prison when they are sentenced in July,” the report said.
