Adam Kokesh has been sentenced to 2 year probation with time served Friday morning in D.C. Superior Court,. The prosecutors had sought a 12 month sentence due to the fact that 31-year-old Adam Kokesh, remains “unremorseful for his actions” and is at a “high risk for recidivism.”
Kokesh’s gun related felony was due to videotaped activism meant to protest the restrictive gun laws in the District of Columbia. It is illegal to carry a firearm outside of the home in D.C.
Kokesh had been held at the D.C. Jail. The guilty plea guaranteed that Kokesh wouldn’t receive additional charges due to an attempt to smuggle a phone in to Kokesh at the D.C. Jail.
Here is the video that led to the charges:
