Proud Boys leader, Enrique Tarrio, was among those convicted, despite not being in Washington at the time of the group’s actions. The defendants were part of a group that aimed to forcibly prevent the peaceful transfer of power from Donald Trump to Joe Biden following the 2020 elections.

We covered January 6th in real time here.

We also included the events on the Captiol in our Special Report, Cult Minded, you can watch it here.

All five defendants were found guilty of other charges related to January 6, including: Obstruction of an official proceeding; Conspiracy to prevent an officer from discharging any duties; Obstruction of law enforcement during civil disorder; and Destruction of government property and aiding and abetting.

The jury was unable to reach a verdict on the seditious conspiracy charge against Pezzola. Unlike the other defendants in this trial, Pezzola is not alleged to have a leadership position in the organization and was inactive in Proud Boys group chats.
