Drexel Hill Man Receives 100 Days in Prison for Role in Jan. 6 Riot

Drexel Hill resident Brian Healion, a former member of the Proud Boys Philadelphia Chapter, has been sentenced to 100 days in prison for his involvement in the Jan. 6, 2021 riots at the Capitol building. He was also ordered to pay $2,000 in restitution and submit to three years of court supervision upon his release.

During his sentencing hearing in Washington D.C., the 34-year-old apologized for his actions, stating, “I made a big mistake. I let a lot of people down … and I’m very sorry for that.”

While Healion did not physically assault police or destroy property during the riot, he was found to have participated in the Proud Boys’ early planning for violence that day. His lawyer argued that his client’s involvement was limited to asking what sort of equipment he should bring, but prosecutors pointed out that the group had traded emergency contacts and blood types before leaving from Philadelphia on Jan. 5, suggesting they were prepared to engage in violence.
