CHICAGO — A federal judge sentenced a suburban Chicago couple to 18 months of probation Tuesday for entering the U.S. Capitol through a broken window during the Jan. 6 riot and joining a mob trying to break into the congressional chambers.

Seventy-two-year-old John Schubert and 62-year-old Amy Schubert of Crest Hill pleaded guilty in December to misdemeanor charges of unlawful entry of a government building.

John Schubert must also pay a $1,500 fine, and Amy Schubert must pay a $2,000 fine. They also must pay $500 restitution each and perform 100 hours each of community service.

Prosecutors said the couple entered the Capitol through a broken window shortly after Congress evacuated.
