Watch: Grandma Speaks Out After Convicted For Praying in Capitol on Jan. 6

71-year-old grandmother Rebecca Lavrenz faces a year in jail and $210,000 in fines for entering the Capitol to pray.

A Washington, D.C., jury convicted a 71-year-old woman of four federal misdemeanor charges on Thursday related to her participation of the Jan. 6, 2021 protests at the U.S. Capitol.

Rebecca Lavrenz of Falcon, Colorado, known on social media as the “J6 Praying Grandma,” faces up to a year in prison and more than $200,000 in fines for entering the Capitol and praying for 10 minutes.

Lavrenz’s crimes were entering and remaining in a restricted building or grounds, disorderly conduct in a restricted area, disorderly conduct in the Capitol Building, and parading, demonstrating or picketing in the Capitol, according to court documents.

The Justice Department did not accuse her of engaging in violence or destroying any property.

12-member jury at the federal court in the District of Columbia deliberated her case for 26 hours, presumably torn about what to do about a grandma who was only praying in the Capitol on Jan. 6.

“The deliberation was good because obviously at least one person on the jury was fighting for me, and many people have been convicted in the first hour,” Lavrenz told the Colorado Springs Gazette.

“The whole reason I went to the Capitol was to pray,” Lavrenz said. “I didn’t get into this for myself. I was there to stand up for my country. God led me to go there and into the building to stand up for my First Amendment rights to petition the government for a redress of grievances.”

Lavrenz joined Steve Bannon’s “War Room” on Friday to elaborate on her case and August 12 sentencing, saying she was compelled to pray at the Capitol on that fateful day to air her grievances against the government over the stolen 2020 election.
