450 rioters have pleaded guilty to their role in the Capitol Rebellion so far. This table tracks them all.

More than 940 people have been charged with crimes since supporters of former President Donald Trump stormed the US Capitol on January 6, 2021, in an effort to prevent Congress from certifying Joe Biden’s 2020 election victory.

More than a year later, at least 450 people have pleaded guilty to the rebellion.

This table includes the names, admissible charges, and links to court documents of all the people who have pleaded guilty to date. We will keep it updated as more names are released.

John Shaffer, the guitarist who founded Metal Iced Earth, was the first person to plead guilty and agree to cooperate with prosecutors, according to Justice Department filings. Schafer is also a member of the Oath Keepers, a self-styled militia that prosecutors said planned and practiced its attack on the Capitol weeks in advance.

The Paul Hodgkins case was the first criminal judgment to result from the protests. He will spend 8 months in prison and pay a $2,000 recovery fee.

The FBI is still seeking public assistance in identifying the people who participated in one of the most documented crimes in US history.

Attorney General Merrick Garland told senators during his confirmation hearing that he intends to personally oversee the Department of Justice’s handling of the cases.

“I will oversee the trial of white supremacists and others who stormed the Capitol on January 6 – a heinous attack that sought to disrupt a cornerstone of our democracy: the peaceful transfer of power to a newly elected government,” Garland said.

After more than a year of investigating the riots, the House Select Committee to investigate the January 6 attack on the United States Capitol will unveil its findings on June 9, 2022, offering previously unreported testimony from some of the committee’s interviews with senior officials.

Update 2/5/2021: The Department of Justice originally listed Jared Adams as a defendant who pleaded guilty, but the Department of Justice later corrected its website to say Adams pleaded not guilty to the charges.
