After being found guilty of disobeying a subpoena from the House panel looking into the Jan.

6 uprising at the U.S. Capitol, Steve Bannon, a steadfast ally of former President Donald Trump, is scheduled to be sentenced on Friday.

He arrived on Friday morning for the sentencing hearing at the federal courthouse in Washington

In July, a jury found Bannon guilty on two counts of contempt of Congress:

one charge stemmed from his refusal to take a deposition, and the other charge was related to his refusal to turn over documents.

While Bannon's attorneys argued their client deserved a probationary sentence, prosecutors asked the judge in his case to impose a severe penalty of six months in jail.

Bannon's attorneys contend the judge could simply sentence him to probation and avoid sending him to jail

despite the fact that each of the statutes for contempt of Congress carries a minimum sentence of 30 days in jail.

Bannon's participation in Trump's efforts to rig the 2020 presidential election was the subject of the House committee's request for his testimony.

Prosecutors stated that Bannon has not yet testified or given the committee any documents.
