QAnon Shaman Jacob Chansley Released Early from Prison to Halfway House

Jacob Chansley, known as the ‘QAnon Shaman,’ has been released from prison to a halfway house after serving just 27 months of his 41-month sentence for his role in the storming of the Capitol on January 6, 2021. Chansley pleaded guilty in September 2021 to civil disorder and violent entry to the Capitol, among other charges. While it is unclear what led to his early release, his attorney, Albert S. Watkins, praised the decision and stated that Chansley is “a gentle and intelligent young man.”

Federal Guidelines for Early Release

According to federal guidelines, prisoners can receive reduced sentences for good behavior. However, under these guidelines, Chansley would have served at least 35 months and 22 days of his sentence. Watkins declined to comment on what led to the early release, stating that it was a decision of the US Bureau of Prisons.

Tucker Carlson’s Footage and Exculpatory Evidence

Earlier this month, Tucker Carlson aired footage from the January 6 riot that showed Chansley being escorted by Capitol Police officers through the building, while other officers allowed him to pass. Carlson argued that the footage proved that the rioters were “sightseers” and “mostly peaceful.” Chansley’s former lawyer stated that he had not seen the footage and argued that it was “clearly exculpatory.”

Chansley’s Future

Chansley’s release to a halfway house will allow him to transition back into society gradually. His attorney expressed confidence that Chansley will lead a “law-abiding and enriching life” moving forward. Bureau of Prison records show that his release date is set for May 25.

  1. I’m waiting for some of the books that will be written by the prisoners’ held WITHOUT charges for two years now. Also hopefully they will have the names and pictures of the guards that tormented them!

  2. His early release is clearly tied to the release of the video that was withheld from his defense council. By releasing him the government will no longer provide him with a free defense attorney which will likely prevent him from being able to sue the government for wrongful prosecution but will also stop any further investigation into his case. This is nothing more than the DOJ trying to cover their corruption.
