A person previously best known for putting fourth in a “sexy farmer” contest in Kentucky faces 30 days in prison for his participation within the Jan. 6, 2021, attack on the U.S. Capitol, in response to a sentencing advice filed in federal court.
Jordan Revlett agreed to a plea deal in January on one count of “parading, demonstrating, or picketing in a Capitol Constructing,” which carries a maximum sentence of six months in jail, far higher that what prosecutors asked for.
Along with the 30 days, the U.S. Department of Justice is recommending Revlett spend 36 months on probation, perform 60 hours of community service, and pay $500 in restitution.
During a January FBI interview at his family’s farm in Island, Kentucky, Revlett initially claimed that a police officer had let him into the constructing and nodded “like nothing was unsuitable” after he made eye contact, then he proceeded inside.
Revlett also made the claim on Snapchat after the riot, where he posted a selfie together with the caption, “Just so that you guys know a capitol police officer opened the door from inside to allow us to in.”

The claim, nonetheless, was undercut completely by video the 22-year-old shared on Snapchat on the time he entered the Upper West Terrace door. No officer was present ― only Revlett yelling “Holy shit!” as he passed through the door with high-pitched alarms blaring within the background.
Closed-circuit camera footage of the inside the door, captured from multiple angles, also shows Capitol Police weren’t guarding the door on the time.

Once contained in the Capitol constructing, video shows Revlett loitered for 32 minutes, mostly within the Capitol Rotunda.
At one point he acquired a bullhorn from a fellow rioter and started making what U.S. Attorney Matthew Graves described within the sentencing document as “unknown announcements,” then “joined in chants with other rioters against the police.”
Friday’s sentencing memorandum notes that Revlett “has yet to precise meaningful remorse” for participating within the armed revolt, and that he continues to assert, absent any evidence, that a Capitol Police officer encouraged him inside.
Revlett’s case garnered more attention than a few of his peers’ due to his participation within the 2019 “She Thinks Her Farmer’s Sexy” contest, which sought to discover the sexiest farmer within the Kentucky tri-state area.
Revlett placed fourth. His sentencing is currently scheduled for July 6.
