Ocala couple plead guilty to Capitol attack

The Ocala couple agreed on Monday to plead guilty to some of the charges brought against them following the 2021 US Capitol attack.

Jamie and Jennifer Buteau were arrested at their home in June 2021.

Agents investigating the riots said they saw Butoh on CCTV footage and also received some advice from members of the public who posted messages on social media showing the couple were in Washington, D.C. on January 6 and made their way inside the Capitol building.

Investigators claimed that Jamie Buteau threw a chair at Capitol cops. Authorities said the chair bounced off the door and hit one of the officers.

Throwing a chair, Jamie Buteau reunited with his wife, walked into the lobby and grabbed another chair, according to their initial arrest report. Records show the couple left the Capitol around 2:46 p.m.

The report also includes a screenshot from Jennifer Buteau’s Facebook page in which she admits she removed the live video from the Capitol because she didn’t want to “entertain Antifa.”

Jamie Buteau pleaded guilty to a felony charge of assaulting, resisting or obstructing certain officers, while Jennifer Buteau pleaded guilty to a misdemeanor charge of parading, demonstrating, or picketing at the Capitol Building.

They will be sentenced on October 20.
