Eleven members of the Oath Keepers, including the group’s founder, Stewart Rhodes, were indicted on Jan. 12 by a federal grand jury in the District of Columbia for an alleged “seditious conspiracy” to attack the U.S. Capitol and prevent the certification of electoral votes from the 2020 presidential election.

The indictment, which was unsealed on Jan. 13, brings the first Jan. 6, 2021-related charges against Elmer Stewart Rhodes III, 56, of Granbury, Texas; and Edward Vallejo, 63, of Phoenix. Rhodes faces a count of seditious conspiracy and four other charges; Vallejo is charged with seditious conspiracy and three other counts.

It’s the first federal indictment alleging seditious conspiracy on Jan. 6, a charge that, upon conviction, carries a maximum prison term of 20 years.
