Enrique Tarrio: 22 years old
Tarrio, former president of the Proud Boys, was sentenced to 22 years in prison on Tuesday for orchestrating a seditious plot to keep then-President Donald Trump in power. Tarrio has been in prison since his arrest in February 2022.
Prosecutors wanted Tarrio to be sentenced to 33 years in prison.
Tarrio was not present on Capitol Hill on Jan. 6 because he was ordered to stay away from Washington after being arrested and charged with burning a Black Lives Matter banner. However, prosecutors say Tarrio continued to rally his men from a distance, urging them to stay at the Capitol.
Tarrio was convicted in May.
Stewart Rhodes: 18
Stewart Rhodes, the leader of the far-right Oath Keepers party, was sentenced last week to 18 years in prison for seditious conspiracy.
Prosecutors say Rhodes planned a week-long effort to derail the transfer of power from Trump to Joe Biden, leading to the organization of dozens of allies to descend on Washington on January 6. Rhodes was sentenced in November.
Rhodes, a Yale law graduate and military veteran, was the first of the Jan. 6 defendants, including nine Oath Keepers, to be sentenced after being found guilty of seditious conspiracy.
Kelly Meggs, head of the Florida chapter of the Oath Keepers, was sentenced alongside Rhodes to 12 years in prison.
Joe Biggs: 17
Joe Biggs, a leader of Florida’s Proud Boys on Jan. 6, was sentenced last week to 17 years in prison for conspiring to derail the peaceful transfer of power. Prosecutors had requested a 33-year sentence.
Prosecutors say Biggs was part of the driving force behind the Jan. 6 violence by facilitating breaches in police lines and helping crowds advance toward the Capitol.
Biggs is an Army veteran who suffered head injuries in Iraq and later served as a correspondent for the conspiracy website InfoWars.
Zach Rehl: 15 years old
Zach Rehl, another Proud Boys frontman, was sentenced to 15 years in prison alongside Biggs last week for conspiring to derail the peaceful transfer of power. Prosecutors had requested a 30-year prison sentence against Rehl.
Rehl was seen on video spraying an irritating chemical at police officers outside the Capitol on Jan. 6, but he lied about the assault during his testimony. Rehl also drove at least three other men to the Capitol and a senator’s office to smoke and pose for pictures.
Peter Schwartz: 14 years old
Peter Schwartz, of Pennsylvania, was sentenced in May to just over 14 years in prison. Schwartz was convicted in December of 10 counts, including four felony charges of assaulting, resisting or obstructing police officers while using a dangerous weapon.
A jury found Schwartz guilty of assault and civil disorder for throwing a chair at police officers and pepper spraying them. Schwartz also has a criminal history of 38 felony convictions dating back to 1991.
Daniel “DJ” Rodriguez: 12 years old
Daniel “DJ” Rodriguez, who rammed a stun gun into a police officer’s neck on January 6, was sentenced to 12 years in prison in June.
Former DC police officer Michael Fanone’s body camera showed the officer screaming in pain after Rodriguez shocked him with a stun gun, according to The Associated Press. Rodriguez also deployed a fire extinguisher at the officers and pushed a wooden pole towards the police cordon.
As Rodriguez was led out of the courtroom after his sentencing, he shouted, “Trump won! »
Dominique Pezzola: 10 years
Dominic Pezzola, a New York Proud Boy, was sentenced last week to 10 years in prison for instigating the Jan. 6 attack on the Capitol when he smashed a window with a riot shield stolen by police .
Pezzola also filmed himself inside the Capitol smoking a cigar and celebrating the Capitol breach.
Pezzola, unlike other Proud Boy members, was a newcomer who hadn’t written violent messages online before the Jan. 6 attack, according to The Associated Press. However, the judge argued that Pezzola was still “the tip of the spear” in allowing the rioters into the Capitol on Jan. 6.
Thomas Webster: 10 years
Thomas Webster, a retired New York City police officer who assaulted a Washington officer on the front lines of the Capitol riot, was sentenced to 10 years in prison last week.
Webster was the first defendant to make a claim of self-defense, although a jury rejected that claim because he tackled a Washington officer and grabbed his gas mask. Webster said he wished he had never been to Washington.
U.S. District Judge Amit Mehta described Webster’s assault on the officer as one of the most haunting and shocking images of Jan. 6.
