A prison consultant working with Capitol-riot defendants told Insider that most of his clients were not expecting to face serious punishments like jail time.
Dan Wise, a federal prison consultant based in Palm Beach, Florida, said he's spent the last few months helping people who have been charged in connection to the insurrection and are preparing for their upcoming trials.
The charges most of his clients face are mainly misdemeanors, such as parading, demonstrating, or picketing in a Capitol building, although some also face obstruction charges.
"A lot of them really thought nothing was going to happen," Wise told Insider. "They were like: 'No, this is going to get blown over. I just wanted to have a quick call with you to see what you thought.'"
Wise served 12 months at Coleman Federal Prison in Florida from 2014 to 2015 after pleading guilty to conspiracy to distribute drugs in Georgia.
