In September, Infowars reporter and War Room host Owen Shroyer was sentenced to 60 days in prison by a DC court for his actions on January 6, 2020 and prior.
It has now been revealed that he is facing an additional 30 days in solitary confinement. His official X account states: “We have received a tip indicating that Owen is now facing 30 days in solitary confinement. He has been moved to another building on the FCI Oakdale prison grounds. We have still not been able to communicate directly. This is the only information we have at this time.”
Owen will remain incarcerated until Christmas Eve due to his “offensive words” spoken on January 6.

Upon his arrival to prison, Shroyer was put in solitary confinement for five days because of the facility’s Covid policies.
According to The Post Millennial, he was placed in solitary confinement for an extended period of time after a telephone call from prison was distributed on X as a message to his supporters.

Owen Shroyer did not enter the Capitol building on January 6th. Despite this, government prosecutors have alleged that his rhetoric – which warned Democrats of potential tyranny and encouraged insurrection – “helped create” the riot.
This accusation has resulted in Shroyer being detained by the DC court, a decision which reflects a disregard for freedom of speech prevalent in dictatorships around the world today.
“The Democrats are posing as communists, but we know what they really are: They’re just tyrants, they’re tyrants,” Shroyer said into a megaphone, according to the government’s sentencing memo. “And so today, on January 6, we declare death to tyranny! Death to tyrants!”
Prosecutors noted Shroyer championed Americans who protested the stolen election and “spread election disinformation paired with violent rhetoric to hundreds of thousands, if not millions, of viewers” of InfoWars.
Shroyer shared the following moments before entering prison.
