    Figured we should start a separate thread on the arrests and those involved in the storming of the Capitol. I know it has been talked about in the other thread a lot, but for the ones who just want to follow the ones arrested and/or charged, this will be an easier way to see updates on the investigations.

    Link below is everyone who has been arrested. But we know there will be more.

    The website seems to be updated with new information daily.

    The ones who are getting the most air time:

    WASHINGTON (AP) — Two Florida men who stormed the U.S. Capitol with other members of the far-right Oath Keepers group were sentenced Friday to three years in prison for seditious conspiracy and other charges — the latest in a historic string of sentences in the Jan. 6. 2021 attack.

    David Moerschel, 45, a neurophysiologist from Punta Gorda, and Joseph Hackett, a 52-year-old chiropractor from Sarasota, were convicted in January alongside other members of the antigovernment extremist group for their roles in what prosecutors described as a violent plot to stop the transfer power from former President Donald Trump to President Joe Biden after the 2020 election.

    Both men were among the lower-level members charged with seditious conspiracy. Moerschel was sentenced to three years in prison and Hackett got three and a half years.

    All told, nine people associated with the Oath Keepers have been tried for seditious conspiracy and six were convicted of the rarely used Civil War-era charge in two separate trials, including the group’s founder Stewart Rhodes. Rhodes was sentenced last week to 18 years in prison — a record for a Jan. 6 defendant. Three defendants were cleared of the sedition charge but found guilty of other Jan. 6 crimes……

     
    ACalifornia yoga instructor who allegedly conspired with extremists to disrupt government operations on Jan. 6, 2021, has defended himself in a highly unusual court filing.

    In a document submitted to the United States District Court for the District of Columbia, Alan Hostetter chose to represent himself instead of obtaining an attorney.

    Hostetter argues he was wrongly charged over the Jan. 6 attacks.

    "President Trump won the 2020 election in one of the biggest landslide victories in U.S. history," the document begins. "Our constitutional republic was overthrown. An imposter president was installed. This was an actual act of treason rather than a false flag fedsurrection, as was J6. (FACT)."

    In the document, Hostetter accuses the federal government of "entrapment" because "there is no (legitimate) explanation other than federal law enforcement and intelligence agencies staged this obvious false flag event for nefarious purposes."

    Hostetter asserts Jan. 6 could not be considered a riot because he was present for the 1992 riots over Rodney King's beating while serving as a police officer.

    "What is real? What is fake?" he asks. "Very early in my career I was sent to the urban war zone of the Rodney King Riots in L.A. – an actual and very real riot, unlike fedsurrection."

    The document recalls Hostetter's time as an undercover officer to burnish his expertise.............

    I'm guessing he won't be going to a fake prison. It'll be quite real.
     
    Still not through with their post-Jan. 6 clampdown, federal prosecutors now want a man accused of spraying bee killer on law enforcement to buzz off to prison for a long time.

    Small businessman Peter G. Moloney, a 58-year-old from Bayport, New York, faces a veritable colony of felony and misdemeanor charges that could land him behind bars for decades. Moloney also punched and shoved a photographer for The Associated Press, authorities say. The charges against him include civil disorder, assaulting law enforcement, assault by striking and more.

    A conviction on the top count alone carries a possible 20-year penalty.

    Though notable in his alleged choice of weapon, Moloney is hardly alone among those accused of trying to spray chemicals in the faces of police who defended the U.S. Capitol. Nearly 350 people have been charged to date with assaulting, resisting, or impeding officers or employees. Some used mace, pepper spray and even bear spray on Jan. 6, 2021.

    Moloney deployed Black Flag Wasp, Hornet & Yellow Jacket Killer, in an attack on police caught on video, according to the FBI.

    Still frames from the footage — and a photograph of the label — are embedded in the affidavit supporting the criminal charges............


     
    An actor known for his roles on the comedy television shows “Bob's Burgers” and “Mr. Show with Bob and David” was arrested Wednesday on charges that he joined a mob of Donald Trump supporters in confronting police officers during the U.S. Capitol riot, court records show.

    Jay Johnston was arrested in Los Angeles on charges including civil disorder, a felony. He is expected to make his initial court appearance in California on Wednesday. Online court records don't list an attorney for Johnston.

    Video footage captured Johnston pushing against police and helping rioters who attacked officers guarding an entrance to the Capitol in a tunnel on the Lower West Terrace, according to an FBI agent's affidavit. Johnston held a stolen police shield over his head and passed it to other rioters during the attack on Jan. 6, 2021, the affidavit says.

    Johnston “was close to the entrance to the tunnel, turned back and signaled for other rioters to come towards the entrance,” the agent wrote.

    Johnston was the voice of the character Jimmy Pesto on Fox's “Bob's Burgers." The Daily Beast reported in December 2021 that Johnston was “banned” from the animated show after the Jan. 6 attack...........

     
    WASHINGTON (AP) — A Virginia man who told his wife — and a federal jury — that he had “fun” at the U.S. Capitol riot was sentenced on Friday to six years in prison for attacking police as he stormed the building.

    Markus Maly’s prison sentence is significantly lower than the punishment that prosecutors sought for his role in the Jan. 6, 2021, insurrection. The Justice Department had recommended a prison sentence of 15 years and eight months for Maly, a flooring installer.

    A prosecutor described Maly, 49, as a “lifelong criminal” with 33 prior convictions on his record, including two for battery of a law enforcement officer. But the judge who sentenced Maly noted that most of his crimes date back to his 20s.

    Maly told U.S. District Judge Amit Mehta that he regrets traveling to Washington and following the mob of then-President Donald Trump’s supporters to the Capitol. But he insisted that he merely “occupied space” in the crowd and denied attacking and pepper-spraying police…..




    “I went to a rally. That’s what I did,” he told the judge.
     
    Two men who were active-duty members of the Marines Corps when they stormed the U.S. Capitol pleaded guilty on Monday to riot-related criminal charges.

    Joshua Abate and Dodge Dale Hellonen are scheduled to be sentenced in September by U.S. District Judge Ana Reyes.

    Both pleaded guilty to a misdemeanor count of parading, demonstrating or picketing in a Capitol building, according to a spokesperson for the U.S. Attorney’s office for the District of Columbia.

    Many Capitol rioters are military veterans, but only a few were actively serving in the armed forces when they joined a mob’s attack on Jan. 6, 2021.…..


     
    An Oregon man who was seen picking up a phone inside the U.S. Capitol on Jan. 6 and shouting threats against then-House Speaker Nancy Pelosi and Vice President Mike Pence has been convicted of almost a dozen charges.

    Richard L. Harris, 42, was found guilty Wednesday following a three-day bench trial. According to prosecutors, he was among the first in the crowd of Donald Trump supporters who violently breached the Capitol building as Congress was certifying Joe Biden’s 2020 electoral win, having forced his way to the front of the crowd despite having been hit with chemical spray by police trying to keep the mob at bay.

    Once inside, he was seen on video “menacing Capitol Police officers from the front of a large crowd, resulting in the officers moving aside so that Harris and the crowd could continue into the building.”

    Video also recorded Harris picking up a landline phone in the Capitol Rotunda and demanding to speak with Pelosi, a Democrat and then-leader of the House of Representatives, and Pence, who was overseeing the certification process — both of whom were repeatedly targeted with vile, violent threats that day.

    “Can I speak to Pelosi? We’re coming, b—-,” Harris said. “Oh, Mike Pence? We’re coming for you, too, you f—— traitor.”.............

     
    Pam Hemphill, a 69-year-old woman convicted for participating in the Capitol riot, has told Donald Trump to stop using her story for his political purposes.

    Mr Trump commented "HORRIBLE" on his Truth Social account in response to a post claiming the grandmother would have to spend more time in jail than Hunter Biden, who accepted a plea deal relating to a years-long investigation into his taxes.

    Hemphill responded to Mr Trump's comments on Twitter, calling for him to stop using her story to boost his agenda.…..
