Four Oath Keepers who rioted on Jan 6 are convicted for obstruction

Four members of the Oath Keepers militia who partook in the riot at the U.S. Capitol on Jan. 6 were convicted of conspiring to obstruct an official proceeding this Monday, NBC News reported.

Sandra Parker, Laura Steele, Connie Meggs and William Isaacs were found guilty of conspiracy to obstruct an official proceeding. Michael Greene, who is also an Oath Keepers member, was found not guilty of conspiracy to obstruct an official proceeding, but the judge ordered the jury to continue debating whether he was guilty of aiding or abetting the obstruction of an official proceeding. Bennie Parker was found not guilty of aiding or abetting, but the jury is still deliberating the conspiracy to obstruct an official proceeding charge, according to NBC News’ report.

All six defendants were found guilty of entering or remaining in a restricted building or grounds.

From NBC News: This was the third group of Oath Keepers members to go to trial for their actions on Jan. 6, but these defendants did not face the more serious and seldom-used charge of seditious conspiracy that those in the first two groups faced.

Parker, Steele, Meggs and Isaacs were alleged to have entered the Capitol, while Greene and Parker were not.
