BOSTON — It has been nearly one year since the attack on the U.S. Capitol and the U.S. Attorney for the District of Columbia has updated the number of people facing criminal charges across the country, including those here in the Boston area.
To date, more than 725 defendants have been arrested in nearly all 50 states and the District of Columbia.
Eleven of those defendants have been charged by the FBI Boston Division, which has jurisdiction over Massachusetts, New Hampshire, Rhode Island and Maine.
The 11 people arrested by the FBI Boston Division are:

The FBI says it is still looking information on dozens of other men and women involved on January 6, 2021 and the agency has compiled a “most wanted” list for the U.S. Capitol Violence.
Of the 725 people already facing charges across the country, the U.S. Attorney for the District of Columbia says more than 225 of the defendants have been charged with “assaulting, resisting, or impeding officers or employees, including over 75 individuals who have been charged with using a deadly or dangerous weapon or causing serious bodily injury to an officer.”
The U.S. Attorney also says about “140 police officers were assaulted Jan. 6 at the Capitol including about 80 U.S. Capitol Police and about 60 from the Metropolitan Police Department.”
Approximately 640 of the defendants have been charged with “entering or remaining in a restricted federal building or grounds.”
To date, 165 people have pleaded guilty to a variety of federal charges, from misdemeanors to felony obstruction, “many of whom will face incarceration at sentencing,” says the U.S. Attorney for the District of Columbia.
“Approximately 70 federal defendants have had their cases adjudicated and received sentences for their criminal activity on January 6. Thirty-one have been sentenced to periods of incarceration. Eighteen have been sentenced to a period of home detention, and the other defendants have been sentenced to probation with no term of incarceration,” according to the statement.
In the statement, the U.S. Attorney’s office says, “The government continues to investigate losses that resulted from the breach of the Capitol, including damage to the Capitol building and grounds, both inside and outside the building. According to a May 2021 estimate by the Architect of the Capitol, the attack caused approximately $1.5 million worth of damage to the U.S. Capitol building...The Department of Justice’s resolve to hold accountable those who committed crimes on Jan. 6, 2021, has not, and will not, wane.”
