September 1, 2022 U.S. District Judge Amit Mehta sentenced Thomas Webster, 56, to 10 years in prison plus three years of supervised release, noting that along with Rathbun, “the other victim was democracy.”
Webster retired from the NYPD in 2011 after 20 years. He served in the U.S. Marine Corps from 1985 to 1989.
Thomas Webster’s prison sentence is the longest so far among roughly 250 people who have been punished for their role in the insurrection on Jan. 6, 2021. The previous longest was shared by two other rioters, who each were sentenced to seven years and three months in prison.
