New Jersey Man And Nazi Sympathizer Sentenced To 4 Years in Prison For His Role In The January 6th Riot Now Free

Timothy Hale-Cusanelli, the New Jersey man with alleged Nazi sympathies who was sentenced to four years in prison for his role in the January 6, 2021 riot at the U.S. Capitol, has now been freed from federal prison.

Hale-Cusanelli is a former Army reservist who worked as a security guard at the Navy Weapons Station Earle in Monmouth County, where he held a “security” security clearance.

He was found guilty on all counts during his trial in May of 2022 and served his sentence, which included time served and good behavior, at the low-security federal prison at Fort Dix.

At the time his sentencing, the judge also ordered Hale-Cusanelli to 36 months of supervised release following his release from prison.

During his trial, Hale-Cusanelli made headlines after he claimed that he didn’t know there was an actual building that was called the ‘Capitol.’

“I know this sounds idiotic, but I’m from New Jersey,” Timothy Hale-Cusanelli, a Colts Neck resident, told jurors on Thursday. “In all my studies, I didn’t know there was an actual building that was called the ‘Capitol.’ It’s embarrassing and idiotic.”

According to reports, one former colleague of Hale-Cusanelli told investigators he recalled the suspect telling him that if he was a Nazi “he would kill all the Jews and eat them for breakfast.”

While most of Hale-Cusanelli’s videos have been removed from major platforms, TLS staff viewed a video posted by the individual in April of this year in which he rails against and spews anti-Semitic conspiracy theories and statements against Lakewood’s Orthodox Jews.

The contents of the video, being vile and repugnant, will not be shared on this platform.

Sources have also told TLS that Hale-Cusanelli was a regular poster on Jackson Strong and Rise Up Ocean County, both anti-Semitic groups, with RUOC having been targeted by Governor Phil Murphy and former Attorney General Gurbir Grewal for the hate spewed by its members. TLS has not yet been able to independently verify this claim.
