The first part of the January 6 Committee hearings is now finished (before continuing again in September), and has led to significant revelations regarding the build-up to the incident and what was happening away from the Capitol itself on that day. While the legal peril for those involved in this element of the Capitol breach is still in many cases unclear and developing, our infographic takes a look at the justice that has so far been served to those acting on the ground.

More than two years since the U.S. Capitol breach, documentation from the U.S. Attorney’s Office for the District of Columbia and the Washington Post shows that 842 people have been charged with at least one offense related to the incident – 218 of them have so far been convicted and sentenced for at least one of their charges.
One of the most high-profile convictions was Jacob Anthony Chansley (more widely known as the “QAnon Shaman”). Chansley received a sentence of 41 months incarceration followed by 36 months of supervised release for the offence of ‘Obstruction of an Official Proceeding” – the shortest possible sentence he could have received. Chansley joins other defendants, such as Scott Fairlamb (41 months) and Troy Smocks (14 months) in doing hard time for their actions at the Capitol. As our infographic shows, 116 defendants are still awaiting sentencing.
