University of Kentucky’s Gracyn Dawn Courtright Is Facing Charges Over Capitol Riot

University of Kentucky student Gracyn Dawn Courtright, wrote “can’t wait to tell my grandkids I was here” on an Instagram photo showing the senior with her arms raised in the air. Now the U.S. government is using her social media postings against her in a court of law with three federal charges in connection to the January 6 riot.

In one photo, the West Virginia native, is seen carrying a “Members Only” sign around the Capitol. That led to a theft of government charge for Gracyn, who has since deleted her social media pages, but not before the government was able to snag a few screenshots to use against her.

The Courier-Journal reports Courtright is charged with “knowingly entering or remaining in a restricted building or grounds, engaging in disorderly conduct in a restricted building, violent entry and disorderly conduct on Capitol grounds and theft of government property under $1,000, according to court records.”

The government also has what it says are direct messages between Gracyn and a witness where the UK senior says “it’s history idc,” “I thought it was cool,” and “idk what treason is.”

Courtright’s father, an attorney, reportedly told the FBI that his daughter was in D.C. to attend “the party” and that she was in front of the crowd for President Trump’s speech earlier in the day.

  1. wow no comments?!

    well
    the texting of children wont sway me about much…mixing it up with cops = bad, violence = bad, yaddah yadda ya….also I credit Tim Dillon with reminding the world that noone really does any thinking anymore…like just ‘think’ for a bit…THINK..with your brain

  2. Well she’s right the cops did allow that group in…

    …but given what DC is all about, that was probably ‘trap 101’. Between antifa being there and the fact probably 95% of Congress/deep state hates those people and this was one good way to peg them…I wouldn’t have wanted to be in that crowd.

  3. “treason” and “wrong side of history”…anyone who claims they know how things will be remembered is an absolute douche.. Democrats all of sudden have clear morality when it comes to the capitol raid. However, have amnesia bout 2016-2020 or say it was for “justice’ therefore their violence is OK. I’m not going to trash this girl it too easy especially when Democrats ignored the bufoonery of their side which led to this moment.

  4. The people, antifa and probably some wackos on the right, who started this 40 minutes before the President stopped speaking should be prosecuted. But those who showed up an hour later and simply walked through with no resistance, well, give them a trespassing ticket if you want.
