Former Oklahoma City Thunder worker pleads guilty in U.S. Capitol riot
A former Oklahoma City Thunder worker has pleaded guilty to a misdemeanor for going inside the U.S. Capitol through a broken window on Jan. 6.
Danielle Nicole Doyle, 37, was one of four Oklahomans charged in federal court in Washington, D.C., after a mob stormed the Capitol.
She faces up to six months in federal prison and a fine of $5,000 at her sentencing. She already has agreed to pay the federal government $500 in restitution.
Her attorneys will ask the judge for probation.
"She's extremely remorseful. She just got caught up in the moment," defense attorney Irven Box said.

"She did not stay inside the Capitol long. She wrote in her statement that once she was in there that she realized, 'This is not who I am or what I am and I should get out of here.' And she got out.
"She didn't cause any damage. She didn't assault anyone."
She pleaded guilty Wednesday by Zoom from an Oklahoma City law office, Box said. She will have to appear in person in Washington, D.C., for her sentencing on Oct. 1.

She acknowledged that she knew she did not have permission to enter the building but did so willfully "for the purpose of parading, demonstrating or picketing."
Congress had convened at 1 p.m. Jan. 6 to count Electoral College votes and affirm Joe Biden's presidential victory. Supporters of then-President Donald Trump first entered the building shortly after 2 p.m.
Doyle went in at 2:20 p.m. as House members, senators and then-Vice President Mike Pence began evacuating the chambers, according to a statement of the offense.
She claims she was only in the building 20 to 25 minutes.
She worked for more than 10 years for the Thunder and was a senior season ticket account manager when she left in December. She came under investigation after a former co-worker contacted the FBI about seeing her inside the Capitol on a CNN video.
An FBI agent then reviewed surveillance videos from Jan. 6 and spotted her multiple times including climbing through the window.
She was originally charged in February with four misdemeanors. Prosecutors agreed to ask the judge at sentencing to dismiss the other counts. She remains free on conditions.
