The Arkansas man who became infamous for placing his feet up on then-House Speaker Nancy Pelosi's desk during the Jan. 6 Capitol riot was found guilty Monday on all eight charges. 

Jurors deliberated the case against Richard "Bigo" Barnett for two hours before coming to a decision, according to CBS News.

Among the felony charges against the 62-year-old Barnett were civil disorder and obstruction of an official proceeding.

Prosecutors say Barnett brought a stun gun, tucked into his waistband, into the capitol. 

Barnett's attorney Joe McBride said the D.C. jury that the case went before was not reflective of the rest of the country, as the District of Columbia is notoriously liberal.

The sentencing is scheduled for May 3.
