LITTLETON, Colo. (KDVR) — A man charged for his alleged  involvement in the Jan. 6 riots at the United States Capitol building was ordered to home incarceration on Monday morning during a court appearance.

Prosecutors Patrick Montgomery, killed a mountain lion in March even though he was ordered not to have any illegal guns while the charges against him related to the Jan. 6 riot are pending. They say Montgomery wasn’t allowed to have firearms because of a 1996 robbery conviction.

Montgomery was charged with knowingly entering or remaining in any restricted building or grounds without lawful entry and disorderly conduct on Capitol grounds in connection with the Capitol riot.

Montgomery will be placed in home confinement with GPS monitoring. He is restricted to his home except to be equipped with GPS monitoring, medical necessities, court appearances, or other activities specifically approved by the court.

He is also not permitted to possess any weapons or firearms, nor is permitted to have them in his home. He is also prohibited from hunting.

According to police paperwork, Montgomery was identified from photos posted on Facebook that show him inside the Senate chambers. He is seen in those photos wearing the same clothing that he was seen wearing earlier in the day outside the building.

Montgomery, along with Coloradans Robert GiesweinGlenn Wes Lee Croy and former Olympic swimmer Klete Keller are facing a number of charges and decades in prison if they’re convicted.

Jeffrey Sabol, the fifth defendant with Colorado ties, is facing eight federal charges and is still in jail.
