‘QAnon Shaman’ Released From Halfway House

  • The Jan. 6, 2021, rioter known as “QAnon Shaman” has been released from a halfway, ending his time in custody.
  • The rioter, whose name is Jacob Chansley, “is now appropriately free to continue in his peaceful quest to heal,” said his attorney upon his client’s release Thursday.
  • The attorney also said his client during the sentencing phase of his trial took advantage of the opportunities that his plea deal provided to reduce the time that he needed to serve in prison.
  • Chansley was released from federal prison and transferred to the halfway house in late March.
  • The Bureau of Prisons had listed Chansley’s release date as May 25 but says it does not discuss the conditions of confinement for any inmate, including transfers and release plans, for safety and security reasons.
