A Morris County man has pleaded guilty for his role in the United States Capitol riot.
Shawn Price, of Rockaway, is a member of the far-right group The Proud Boys.
Price pleaded guilty to one count of obstruction of law enforcement during civil disorder. He now faces up to five years in prison.
Price has five other federal charges pending against him. Authorities say he boasted online about his actions on Jan. 6, 2021. His attorney believes Price will have those charges dismissed. He could also get a shorter sentence for cooperating with the Justice Department.
