With the number of people arrested approaching 500, it was the first of what government officials said would likely be similar proceedings for the hundreds of people who also face low-level charges.
Morgan, 49, of the state of IN, pleaded guilty to one count of parading, demonstrating, or picketing IN a captiol building, the report said on Wednesday.
Morgan-Lloyd's sentence could indicate there might be variation in other defendants' punishments, depending on the charges against them and their levels of cooperation. "I went there to show support for President Trump peacefully, and I'm ashamed that it became a savage display of violence".
"Legally, I could give you the six months", Judge Royce Lamberth told Lloyd.
In a letter written to the judge in support of probation, Morgan-Lloyd said she "felt ashamed" that the riot had turned violent and apologized for the chaos that day.
Before receiving her sentence, Morgan-Lloyd tearfully apologized to the court for participating in what she called a "disgraceful" day.
A Tennessee man pleaded guilty Tuesday to illegally demonstrating inside the US Capitol on January 6, becoming the fifth rioter to admit their guilt in the massive federal probe.
Court documents show investigators were alerted about Ms. Morgan-Lloyd by the Green County Sheriff's Office after an employee reported seeing riot-related social media posts by the Bloomington woman, who had been recognized by the employee as a gun-permit applicant.
She had immediately following the breach on January 6 described the events in a Facebook post as the "best day ever" after storming the Capitol building. "I'm proud that I was part of it!"
Morgan-Lloyd, who prosecutors said did not participate in any of the violence at the Capitol, posted on Facebook after the attack that it was the "best. day ever", adding a curse word to the description.
"To be clear, what the Defendant initially described as "the most exciting day of [her] life" was, in fact, a tragic day for our nation-a day of riotous violence, collective destruction, and criminal conduct by a frenzied and lawless mob", Assistant U.S. Attorney Joshua S. Rothstein said in court.
Prosecutors said in court records, however, that her "storming" of the building was a "serious violation of the law". She admitted she was in the building for 10 minutes, but said she did no damage.
"Though she supported the past president in January, she totally accepts President Biden as the leader of our country", said her lawyer, Heather Shaner of Washington, D.C.
