Enrique Tarrio, the leader of the far-right Proud Boys, and three subordinates were convicted of numerous felonies on Thursday including seditious conspiracy for their roles in the Jan. 6, 2021, attack on the US Capitol, according to multiple reports.
A federal jury in Washington, D.C. found Tarrio, Ethan Nordean, Zachary Rehl and Joseph Biggs guilty of conspiring to prevent the peaceful transfer of power and using force and prior planning to hinder the 2020 presidential election certification in an effort to keep Donald Trump in office after he was defeated by President Joe Biden.
All defendants were found guilty of several other felonies, including obstructing an official proceeding; obstructing Congress; conspiracy to prevent an officer from discharging duties; obstruction of law enforcement during civil disorder and aiding and abetting and destruction of government property,” NBC News reports.
There was no verdict for Dominic Pezzola on the most serious charge, seditious conspiracy, and conspiracy to obstruct an official proceeding. After the reading of the partial verdict, Judge Timothy Kelly sent the jury back to deliberate on these charges and several other felonies that they did not come to verdict on, per the news outlet.
