The latest Marylander involved in the insurrection has been sentenced.  WBAL reports Joshua Pruitt, 40, will spend more than four years in prison for storming the U.S. Capitol on Jan. 6. Pruitt is the Silver Spring man who investigators say came face-to-face with Sen. Chuck Schumer as his armed security detail led him to safety. They described him as an aspiring Proud Boys member whose intimidating figure made him an "ideal recruit" for the group on Jan. 6.
