A former Army Ranger and Shaler Area substitute teacher will spend at least five years in federal prison for his role in the Jan. 6, 2021, riots at the U.S. Capitol, a federal judge ruled Wednesday.
Robert Morss, of Glenshaw, was sentenced by U.S. District Judge Trevor McFadden to 66 months in prison followed by two years of supervised release. He must also pay $300 in fines and $2,000 in restitution.
Morss was convicted in August of obstructing an official proceeding, assaulting police with a weapon and robbery. Two other defendants, Geoffrey Sills, 31, of Virginia, and David Judd, 36, of Texas, were also convicted on various counts.
All three men entered the Capitol after attending the Trump rally and violently confronted police in the lower terrace tunnel. Morss joined the crowd on the West Front of the Capitol grounds about 2 p.m., authorities have said. He was wearing a vest designed to hold body armor and carrying a knife sheath and scissors.
