Judge sentences Texas man in US on asylum to 12 months of probation for Capitol riot

Eliel Rosa, 53, entered the U.S. Capitol on January 6 with his friend Jenny Cudd.


WASHINGTON — A federal judge sentenced a Midland, Texas, man to a year’s probation on Tuesday for his role in the Capitol riot – although he could face further fallout due to his asylum status in the U.S.

Eliel Rosa, 53, appeared in person before U.S. District Court Judge Trevor McFadden in D.C. on Tuesday to be sentenced for one count of parading, demonstrating or picketing in a capitol building. Rosa, who entered the U.S. Capitol on January 6 with his friend Jenny Cudd, was indicted in February on five counts – including a felony count of obstruction that could have landed him in prison for 20 years if convicted. Rosa pleaded guilty in July to one Class “B” misdemeanor. Cudd was scheduled to plead guilty before McFadden during a hearing Wednesday afternoon.

The Department of Justice had asked McFadden to sentence Rosa to a month of home confinement. In its sentencing memo and in arguments in court Tuesday, the DOJ said Rosa and Cudd had returned to their hotel after listening to former President Donald Trump’s “Stop the Steal” rally on January 6 – but then returned to the Capitol after hearing former Vice President Mike Pence was not going to overturn the election. Rosa and Cudd subsequently entered the Capitol were near enough to the Speaker’s Lobby that Rosa has claimed he heard the shot that killed Ashli Babbitt.

Three days after the riot, Rosa went to the local FBI office near his home and turned himself in. McFadden, a former federal prosecutor and deputy assistant attorney general who was appointed to the U.S. District Court for the District of Columbia by Trump in 2017, said he had never heard of a defendant surrendering to police before they were even named as a suspect in a crime.

2. In this case I wouldn't be disappointed if Eliel were deported, and the judge who

sentenced him, too! This is beyond ridiculous.
