While over 900 Trump supporters have faced criminal charges and hundreds have been sentenced to prison for roles in the Capitol attack, Trump’s prosecution has been delayed due to legal challenges to his indictment.

His Supreme Court case could further delay or end his trial. Many January 6th defendants argue they were following Trump’s lead and lies about election fraud.

There were “360 degrees of rioters trying to assault you every which way,” Police Officer Christopher Owens said.

Their lives have been upended by charges and convictions while Trump has avoided trial.

Ongoing arrests continue to be made as cases progress through the court system, with some defendants pleading guilty recently, unlike Trump who has pleaded not guilty.

“I went to Washington in response to Trump’s call on social media,” defendant Nhi Ngoc Mai Le wrote. “I’m no longer afraid. Now I have different goals to focus on. I want to prioritize family and career, rather than following politics. I know that Biden is the lawful president of the United States. I feel shame and remorse. It’s embarrassing. I love this country deeply.”

“The sitting president assembled the mob, directed it to the Capitol, and told them to ‘fight like hell,’” an attorney for Colton McAbee wrote. “One cannot consider the seriousness of the actions of the mob on January 6 without considering that each of those people was there because several of our nation’s leaders told them to be there.”

“When powerful leaders, including the president himself, and so-called news outlets are spreading the fiction, Jessica, a high school graduate and mother of four, can hardly be blamed for believing the lies,” an attorney for Jessica Reyher stated.

“While the Court is troubled by Defendant’s social media posts and the serious allegation that he brought a handgun to the Capitol, those nonviolent actions do not persuade the Court that he poses such a danger that no combination of release conditions could assure public safety,” U.S. District Judge Ana Reyes stated.

“I don’t know how Jesus would feel about threatening to kill and execute people, but, you know, to each his own, I guess,” Reyes said.
