Facing the possibility of 28 years in prison, Jacob Chansley, also known as the "QAnon Shaman," is apologizing and saying that he's turning his life around, according to The Arizona Republic.
"I deeply regret and am very sorry I entered into the Capitol Building on January 6, 2021... I should not have been there. Period... I am sorry for having aroused fear in the hearts of others. That was wrong. Period," he said in a statement released by his lawyer.
Chansley has made statements disavowing Donald Trump when it was clear he wasn't going to receive a pardon from the former president -- who many say incited the riot at the U.S. Capitol that Chansley participated in. But this is the first time he's apologized for his role in the incident and the breaching of the Capitol building.
"I am deeply disappointed in former President Trump... He was not honorable. He let a lot of peaceful people down," his statement continued.
