Olympic champion Keller risks hefty imprisonment for Capitol Storming

Former swimming champion Klee Keller hangs a heavy prison sentence over his head. The 38-year-old American was identified by some former teammates and coaches as one of the stormers of the Capitol last Wednesday.

In his career, Keller won two gold medals at the Olympic Games. In 2004 and 2008, he was part of the winning American team during the 4x200m freestyle relay.

The FBI called on social media to help civilians identify the rioters in Washington. On the released footage, Keller stood out for his strong, athletic posture and Olympic training jacket.

Five were killed during the disturbances caused by supporters of President Donald Trump.

By the way, Keller did not commit himself to physical violence on the images, but prosecutor Michael Sherwin also accuses attendees from a legal point of view of conspiring against the government. For this, in the worst case, cell sentences are up to 20 years.
