Gietzen was arrested in Sanford, North Carolina on May 11.
William Todd Wilson - Wilson has pleaded guilty to conspiring with other members of the far-right Oath Keepers militia group to forcefully halt the peaceful transfer of power after President Joe Biden’s 2020 electoral victory. Wilson brought a rifle, pistol, ammunition and other combat gear when he drove to the Washington area on Jan. 5. He left the weapons in a Virginia hotel room but was armed with a pocketknife and wearing a neck gaiter and beanie hat to mask his appearance when he and other Oath Keepers entered the Capitol on Jan. 6, prosecutors said.
Matthew Beddingfield - Beddingfield, who is accused of attacking police and jabbing them with a flagpole at the US Capitol riot, was out on bail for an attempted murder charge at that time, according to reports.

Beddingfield was arrested in Smithfield, North Carolina.
James Little - Little texted a relative the day of the attack saying, “We are stopping treason! Stealing elections is treason! We’re not going to take it anymore!” He was arrested in his Claremont home after admitting to authorities he got “caught up in the moment” at the Capitol.

Christopher Spencer - According to a statement from a task force officer assigned to the FBI, an informant told authorities that Spencer had livestreamed videos to Facebook from inside the U.S. Capitol. At one point, the video showed the Pilot Mountain man walking into an office hallway as he says, “Where’s Nancy’s office?” in an apparent reference to House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, the FBI said.

One year later, DOJ still searching for those responsible on Jan. 6
One year after the attack, the FBI said it is still looking for information on dozens of other men and women involved on Jan. 6, 2021, and the agency has compiled a “most wanted” list for the U.S. Capitol Violence.
Of the 725 people already facing charges across the country, the U.S. Attorney for the District of Columbia said more than 225 of the defendants have been charged with “assaulting, resisting, or impeding officers or employees, including over 75 individuals who have been charged with using a deadly or dangerous weapon or causing serious bodily injury to an officer.”
The U.S. Attorney also said about “140 police officers were assaulted Jan. 6 at the Capitol including about 80 U.S. Capitol Police and about 60 from the Metropolitan Police Department.”
Approximately 640 of the defendants have been charged with “entering or remaining in a restricted federal building or grounds.”
By Jan. 6, 2022, 165 people have pleaded guilty to a variety of federal charges, from misdemeanors to felony obstruction, “many of whom will face incarceration at sentencing,” said the U.S. Attorney for the District of Columbia.
“Approximately 70 federal defendants have had their cases adjudicated and received sentences for their criminal activity on January 6,” according to the attorney’s statement. 31 have been sentenced to incarceration. 18 people were sentenced to house arrest and the other defendants were “sentenced to probation with no term of incarceration,” the statement read.
“The government continues to investigate losses that resulted from the breach of the Capitol, including damage to the Capitol building and grounds, both inside and outside the building. According to a May 2021 estimate by the Architect of the Capitol, the attack caused approximately $1.5 million worth of damage to the U.S. Capitol building,” the U.S. Attorney’s office said. “The Department of Justice’s resolve to hold accountable those who committed crimes on Jan. 6, 2021, has not, and will not, wane.”
