A sentencing hearing for Jon Thomas Mott, 40, of Yellville, has been postponed from Wednesday to April 26.

Mott, the owner of a Flippin coffee shop, has pleaded guilty to parading, demonstrating or picketing in the U.S. Capitol building during the riot on Jan. 6, 2021.

The misdemeanor charge carries a maximum penalty of six months imprisonment and a $5,000 fine.

Prosecutors are recommending Mott be incarcerated for a month, noting that he had "lack of sincere remorse or contrition for his illegal conduct," according to a sentencing memorandum filed last week in federal court in the District of Columbia.

Mott spent 17 minutes in the Capitol before police pushed him out of the building, according to the memorandum.

Mott has remained free since his initial arrest on May 13, 2021.
