Hostetter Convicted!

Former Fontana Assistant Police Chief Alan Hostetter has been found guilty of engaging in insurrection during the January 6, 2021 riots at the U.S. Capitol, where he exhorted an already agitated crowd to obstruct the certification of the November 2020 in favor of Joseph Biden.
Judge Royce Lamberth, who heard the case against Hostetter as a bench trial after the defendant waived his right to a trial by jury, found that despite Hostetter’s professed and actual belief that the election had been stolen from then-incumbent President Donald Trump at the time of his action and his more recently-adopted and professed belief that several of those he was acting in concert with on the days leading up to January 6th as well as on the day of the protests were agents provocateur working on behalf of traitors within the government who had betrayed Donald Trump, the former lawman’s activity had crossed the line from legitimate protest to an effort to overthrow the legally-constituted government.
