LEAHY: J6 Jail Safety Fears, ‘Harmed By Other Prisoners Who Don’t Like Donald Trump?’

Editor-in-Chief and CEO of The Tennessee Star Michael Patrick Leahy dedicated a segment during Tuesday’s edition of The Tennessee Star Report with Michael Patrick Leahy to discuss the imprisonment of January 6 defendant Stewart Parks, who self-reported for incarceration at the Federal Correctional Institution in Memphis on Tuesday to serve an eight-month sentence for being present at the U.S. Capitol on January 6, 2021.

D.C. Circuit Court Judge Amit P. Mehta, who has presided over several trials related to the January 6 Capitol riots, sentenced Parks (pictured above) in November 2023 to three years imprisonment on misdemeanor trespassing, disorderly conduct, and theft charges. Parks, however, will serve his sentence concurrently, reducing his term to eight months behind bars.

Parks complied with Mehta’s order and self-reported to the Federal Correctional Institution at 2:00 pm Central Time on Tuesday, marking the beginning of his eight-month prison term.

Leahy said Mehta, the “MAGA hating judge,” refused on Friday to allow Stewart to stay out of jail pending appeal, which Leahy noted would be “standard.”
