A father and son from southwest Washington are set to accept plea deals with federal prosecutors for entering the U.S. Capitol with a pro-Trump mob during the deadly Jan. 6 insurrection.

Jeff and Jeremy Grace appeared in selfie photos inside and outside the Capitol Building during the insurrection, according to prosecutors.

Jeremy Grace pleaded guilty in April to one count of entering and remaining in a restricted building or grounds, KGW-TV reported. As part of the plea deal, federal prosecutors agreed to drop three additional charges.

He will likely receive a sentence in July ranging from zero to six months in prison, along with a fine from $500 to $9,500, according to court records. Court records show Jeremy Grace also agreed to allow federal agents to review his social media accounts around that time.

Grace’s father, Jeff, is scheduled for a plea hearing on June 17. He is facing similar charges.

KGW wasn’t able to reach Jeff or Jeremy Grace for comment.

The Justice Department has arrested and charged over 800 people for the violence that day, the biggest dragnet in its history.

The House committee investigating the attack will go public with its findings starting Thursday night as lawmakers hope to show the American public how democracy came to the brink of disaster when the defeated president, Donald Trump, tried to overturn Joe Biden’s election victory.
