DENVER (KDVR) — In the two years since the Jan. 6 attack on the U.S. Capitol, investigators have identified and arrested more than a dozen people from Colorado, and six of them have pleaded guilty.
Thousands of people breached the Capitol on Jan. 6, 2021, during a joint session of Congress to affirm the presidential election results. Nationwide, more than 950 people have been arrested in nearly all 50 states and the District of Columbia, according to the Justice Department.
Around a hundred of those people are accused of hurting a police officer in the attack. Others have been charged with hurting a member of the media, destroying or stealing government property and conspiracy, among other counts.
Colorado cases tied to Jan. 6 attack
The George Washington University Program on Extremism has been keeping track of the related criminal cases since the attack. They show that in Colorado, 14 women and two women have been charged.
Six people have pleaded guilty so far:
- Glenn Wes Lee Croy
- Logan Grover
- Thomas Patrick Hamner
- Jennifer Horvath
- Klete Derik Keller
- Daniel Michael Morrissey
Croy, of Colorado Springs, was sentenced to 36 months probation. He pleaded guilty to parading, demonstrating or picketing in a Capitol building. There was no evidence he was violent or destructive that day, according to his plea agreement.
Hamner, of Peyton, was sentenced to 30 months in prison after he was accused of fighting against police trying to stop the raid on the Capitol. He pleaded guilty to a felony count of interfering with law enforcement officers during a civil disorder.
