This Maryland guy got sentenced to a YEAR in prison for throwing 2 outdoor parties at his home against COVID orders

Doesn't that seem a little excessive? A freaking year in prison!

Shawn Marshall Myers from Maryland threw two parties at his own home that violated the governor's social distancing executive order and now he's going to spend a full year behind bars.

They were at his own home and they were outdoor bonfire parties.

He threw one and the cops showed up and convinced him to break it up. He threw another less than a week later and he refused to tell his guests to leave when the cops arrived and told him to do so. He said he had the right to have a party at his house and told his guests not to leave.

And now he's going to prison for a year.

"He was given a warning," Charles County State's Attorney Tony Covington said. "It's not like the police just swooped in there and said you're going to jail. They gave him a warning. He had at least 50 people the first day and then two, three days later, he's doing the same thing. And the second day he's of a mind that he's not going to cooperate, he's going to tell people to keep the music playing."
