Infowars journalist Owen Shroyer was released from federal prison on Friday after serving 45 days of his 60-day sentence.

Shroyer reported to FCI Oakdale prison on October 24th to serve a sentence related to his presence at the U.S. Capitol grounds on January 6th, 2021.

Shroyer never entered the Capitol and was among the few individuals charged in connection to the protest who neither entered the building nor faced allegations of violent or destructive behavior.

“He did not enter the building, but prosecutors said to he violated a previous deferred prosecution agreement that forbade the journalist from using ‘loud, threatening, or abusive language, or to engage in any disorderly or disruptive conduct, at any place upon the United States Capitol Grounds,'” The Post Millennial reports.

The Post Millennial provided further details:


Shroyer served 45 of this 60-day sentence, and spent much of the time in solitary confinement. The first stint, lasting around 5 days, was a result of the prison’s Covid intake policies.

The second, which lasted much of the month of November, came in response to a phone call Shroyer placed with a friend to post on his X account, in which he thanked his followers for their support and letters during his time in prison.

Court documents stated that Shroyer had allegedly completed 30 of the 32 hours of community service required by the deferred prosecution agreement, which was reached in January of 2020 after he “shouted in a loud manner” in a December 2019 House Judiciary Committee hearing.

There’s also a push on X to reinstate Shroyer’s original account upon his prison release.
