Four Members of Proud Boys Found Guilty of ‘Seditious Conspiracy’ for J6



Just the News: Four out of five Proud Boys members were found guilty Thursday on seditious conspiracy charges related to the Jan. 6 Capitol riot as the jury gave a partial verdict.

Proud Boys Enrique Tarrio, Joseph Biggs, Ethan Nordean and Zachary Rehul were found guilty of seditious conspiracy and conspiracy to obstruct an official proceeding. But the jury appears deadlocked on those two charges against Dominic Pezzola, Politico reported.

All of the defendants, including Pezzola, were found guilty on four charges: obstructing Congress, conspiracy to prevent federal officers from discharging their duties, interfering with law enforcement and destroying government property.

The jury found Pezzola guilty of robbery, destroying government property and one count of assaulting a law enforcement officer.

As of mid-Wednesday, the jury was still deliberating whether all Proud Boys are guilty of a separate charge of assaulting or impeding a law enforcement officer. The jury is also deliberating whether all of the Proud Boys, except Pezzola who was found guilty of it, should be convicted of destroying government property.

Additionally, the jury is deliberating a charge against all five men for allegedly assaulting law enforcement.

Thursday was the sixth day of jury deliberation in the trial of the five men, who each faced nine counts related to the Jan. 6, 2021, riot, including a charge of seditious conspiracy that was leveled under a Civil War-era law.

Pezzola faced an additional charge after video showed him smashing a window with a Capitol Police shield, NBC News reported.

Before the partial verdict was announced, the Justice Department urged Judge Timothy Kelly to send jurors back to continue deliberations on the non-unanimous counts. Kelly decided to take the partial verdict and told the jury it may continue deliberating on the remaining counts.

The trial lasted four months, and shocking revelations about the events of Jan. 6 were made during that time. For example, Pezzola’s attorney said at least 40 undercover informants were involved in the riot. One FBI informant who joined the Proud Boys and entered the Capitol on Jan. 6 said he understood that he was able to break the law in certain instances.

Kelly dismissed multiple requests from the defendants to declare a mistrial. For example, last month, Pezzola asked him to declare a mistrial or dismiss the charges against him over allegations of government misconduct.
