Former Oklahoma City Thunder employee convicted of activity in January 6 insurgency on U.S. Capitol


WASHINGTON (KFOR) – A former Oklahoma City Thunder employee charged with the U.S. Capitol uprising has been convicted after pleading guilty in a Washington, DC court.

“I expected it to be a lot harder, but like I said, we’re thrilled with the punishment,” Danielle Nicole Doyle defense attorney Irven Box said.

The Muskogee woman was ordered to pay a fine of $ 3,500 and probation.

“She has two months to pay the fines, so basically she got two months of probation,” the attorney said.

Five hundred dollars of the fee will go to the Capitol Architects Fund, to cover damage left behind when Doyle and a mob stormed the U.S. Capitol on Jan.6.

Photos and videos captured Doyle climbing through a window and walking through the hallways. Her former colleagues returned the 37-year-old after spotting her on the news.

Box said his client initially faced six months in federal prison and three months of house arrest.

“This is the best punishment received so far for the intrusion into the capital who pleaded or was convicted,” he said. “She has no criminal record. She works in the community.

KFOR spoke to Doyle over a year ago about his role in a local parade for ex-combatants.

“Honored a little overwhelmed. Blessed, ”she said.

Two other Oklahomans also pleaded guilty to federal insurgency offenses.

Tanner Sells pleaded guilty earlier this week to marching on Capitol Hill. He faces up to six months in prison and will be sentenced in January. Andrew Ericson also pleaded guilty to breaking into the capital and stealing beer from a refrigerator in the office of House Speaker Nancy Pelosi.

“She got caught up in her passion for the country and got involved in something that she thought was right, and it turned out to be wrong,” Box said. “She thought there was a possibility that she would go to federal prison for a while. But she is very happy about it and she can go on with her life.

Other more high-profile cases, like the so-called QAnon Shaman, have pleaded guilty to a felony charge. He now faces a maximum of 20 years in federal prison and has spent the last nine months in prison.
