Man Pictured Carrying Nancy Pelosi's Lectern at Capitol on Jan. 6 Enters Guilty Plea

Adam Johnson, the 36-year-old man who was photographed carrying the lectern of House Speaker Nancy Pelosi through the highways of the Capitol building January 6 pleaded guilty Monday.

According to the Associated Press, Johnson pleaded guilty to one count of entering or remaining in a restricted building. Johnson's original set of charges also included theft of government property and violent entry and disorderly conduct.

Johnson's photo, pictured smiling and waving while carrying the lectern, was one of the most widely circulated from the January 6 breach of the Capitol building by supporters of former President Donald Trump attempting to delay certification of the votes from the 2020 presidential election.

Identified by friends and family quickly from the famous photograph, Johnson was reported in several tips to the federal government, and he was arrested within days of the incident.

The charge Johnson pleaded guilty to carries a fine or the potential of up to 10 years in prison, although federal prosecutors have reportedly agreed to not seek jail time in the plea agreement.

Pelosi's office in the Capitol was among the rooms breached during the riot in which five people were killed.

In April, Johnson's case was delayed following a request for a 60-day continuance by federal prosecutors. The continuance would allow both sides to adequately prepare their case and evaluate the massive amount of potentially discoverable materials that could pertain to Johnson's case or the cases of over 400 others charged in the months since the riot, along with allowing for the possibility of discussion of a plea deal, what eventually happened in Johnson's case.

A final sentencing hearing for a judge to decide Johnson's punishment is scheduled for February 25, 2022.

A plea agreement recommended that Johnson pay $500 restitution for his share of the damage. Prosecutors have said the riot caused nearly $1.5 million in damage to the U.S. Capitol.

A photo that circulated around the world after the violent uprising showed a grinning, waving man identified as Johnson carrying the lectern through the Capitol rotunda with the clearly visible words "Seal of the Speaker United States House of Representatives." Johnson is wearing a knit cap that says "Trump" on it.

A second photo showed Johnson posing with a sign in the Capitol that says "closed to all tours."

The wooden lectern, valued at about $1,000, was later recovered undamaged in a hallway on the Senate side of the Capitol, officials said.
