Guy Reffitt, the first Jan. 6 Capitol rioter to take his case to trial, was found guilty Tuesday on all five counts against him, according to NBC.
Texas native Reffitt was found guilty of attempting to obstruct the certification of the 2020 presidential election, transporting guns from Texas to DC, bringing a firearm into restricted grounds of the Capitol, interfering with Capitol Police and threatening his son and daughter upon returning from the riot.
The article goes on to state the following:
A 12-person jury deliberated for less than four hours in a D.C. federal court before submitting their decision on Reffitt’s case, after a trial that lasted a week.
Reffitt allegedly carried a gun and zip ties into the Capitol as the crowd swarmed the building, temporarily halting the certification of the 2020 election.
Reffitt’s son, who reportedly informed the FBI of his father’s plans before the riot, testified in the trial.
Prosecutors used Reffitt’s own recordings and footage from during and after the riot.
The case is one of hundreds resulting from the Capitol riot, and many remain behind bars at the DC jail without bail until their trial.
