North Dakota Man Who Ran Over, Killed Conservative Teen Sentenced to 5 Years in Prison

On Friday, 41-year-old Shannon Brandt was sentenced to five years in prison for killing 18-year-old Cayler Ellingson, who he deemed to be a “Republican extremist,” in McHenry, North Dakota in September 2022.

Brandt was originally accused of murder, but had the charges reduced and pleaded guilty to manslaughter.

According to KVRR, Brandt’s prison term will be reduced by almost a year for time served under house arrest. He will also be subject to a period of supervised release after his stint in jail is over.

Ellingson’s death and the alleged political motivations of the incident led many, including Donald Trump, to address the case. While Brandt’s intentions may have been fuelled by Ellingson’s affiliation with a local Republican group, the North Dakota State Medical Examiner’s Office later determined that the death was accidental.

  • Grant says:

    So he got 5 years for murder and the J6 protesters who just stood near the White House got 4 years or even more. Wow! That’s really good to hear! Now all those rotten fu democrats behind everything need to be murdered too!!! I would laugh so fu hard seeing all their deaths played out on national tv!!! Hopefully if Trump wins we can all be party to a spectacular public execution of every fu dirt bag treasonous Demoncrat in power, If there’s a civil war and our side wins, that will happen without trial, just murder them all, yeeeees!

    this is a slap on the wrist for premeditated cold blooded politically motivated murder. The DA, judge and jury should al be ashamed of themselves and step down/away from law/”justice enforcement”, this man should be doing an easy 15-life!
