Hundreds of individuals, including far-right extremists, former police officers, an Olympic gold medalist swimmer, and active U.S. Marines, have been convicted in the extensive prosecution of the January 6, 2021, Capitol riot.

The federal courthouse in Washington continues to handle trials, guilty pleas, and sentences related to the event, with over 1,230 people charged with federal crimes.

The hunt for suspects is ongoing, with more than 80 individuals still being sought for violent acts at the Capitol, and the search for those responsible for placing pipe bombs outside party offices continues. (Trending: Sports Icon Dies Suddenly At 56)

Notably, former President Donald Trump is scheduled to stand trial in March in a case accusing him of conspiring to overturn the 2020 election.

The Supreme Court is set to hear a case that could impact hundreds of January 6 defendants, with a decision expected by early summer.

Dozens of individuals involved in assaulting law enforcement officers during the riot remain unidentified, and the statute of limitations for the crimes is five years.

“We cannot replace votes and deliberation with violence and intimidation,” U.S. attorney for the District of Columbia Matthew Graves stated.

Several defendants have fled, with the FBI still searching for individuals who have been on the run for months.

The identity of the person who placed the pipe bombs remains a significant mystery, with authorities urging anyone with relevant information to come forward.

“We urge anyone who may have previously hesitated to come forward or who may not have realized they had important information to contact us and share anything relevant,” said David Sundberg of the FBI Washington Field Office.
