Lucas Denney of Mansfield was convicted of assaulting officers during the Jan. 6 attack. Denney is a former military police officer who called himself the president of the Patriot Boys of North Texas. He stormed the Capitol wearing tactical gear and a clown mask. Prosecutors said Denney used weapons and chemical spray to attack police as a mob of Trump supporters stormed the Capitol building.
