John "Jack" Juran Arrested:

Man who was arrested in Strykersville sentenced for Jan. 6, 2021 Capitol riot

A Western New York man who was taken into custody in Strykersville has been sentenced in connection with the Jan. 6, 2021, insurrection at the Capitol.

John “Jack” Juran, 51, was sentenced to three years of probation — including two months of home detention — along with a $500 fine and $500 restitution, after he accepted a plea deal on Nov. 26, according to federal prosecutors. He had pleaded guilty to parading, demonstrating, or picketing in a capitol building.

Juran was taken into custody May 19 on a warrant at a Strykersville residence. According to the original indictment, Juran had “knowingly engaged in disorderly and disruptive conduct in any of the Capitol Buildings with the intent to impede, disrupt, and disturb the orderly conduct of a session of Congress or either House of Congress.”

Juran was originally identified in photos wearing a white “Trump 2020” cowboy hat. A tip from the public allowed federal law enforcement to trace his progress through the Capitol. He was apparently inside the building for about 30 minutes, according to federal sources.

Juran is among several Western New York residents who have been charged or taken pleas in connection with the Jan. 6 riot.

William Jayson Sywak, 28, pleaded guilty earlier this month to parading, demonstrating or picketing in a Capitol building, a misdemeanor punishable by up to six months in prison and five years probation. He and his father, William Michael Sywak, 46, of Hamburg, were arrested last year.

The younger Sywak was identified in video footage entering the building, walking up to his father and locking arms before both proceeded down a hallway. They found that an account linked to Jason Sywak had a recovery phone number that was registered to an address in Arcade, Sywak’s girlfriend.

Jason Sywak is originally from Alden and had been living with his girlfriend in Arcade.
