An attorney for the Oath Keepers group, Kellye SoRelle, has decided to plead guilty after being charged with conspiring to obstruct the certification of the 2020 election results. The charges against her involve a shared plan with the group's founder, Stewart Rhodes, to intimidate and hinder lawmakers' work during the Jan. 6 Capitol attack. SoRelle, who initially pleaded not guilty, was found mentally incompetent by a judge in June 2023, leading to a freeze in her case.

Stewart Rhodes, the leader of the Oath Keepers, was convicted of seditious conspiracy in connection with the Jan. 6 riot and was sentenced to 18 years in prison for leading the group's actions. SoRelle, although not accused of using force to oppose the transfer of presidential power, faces serious indictments including conspiracy, obstruction of an official proceeding, tampering with evidence, and trespassing during the Capitol breach. The indictment alleges that she joined Rhodes outside the Capitol, contributing to a plan to intimidate lawmakers and hinder their work.

The Supreme Court's recent ruling has impacted SoRelle's case as it limited the broad application of a statute used against Jan. 6 defendants who obstructed official proceedings. The potential drop of obstruction and conspiracy charges against SoRelle, each carrying a maximum 20-year sentence, highlights the evolving legal landscape for cases related to the Capitol attack. SoRelle's involvement as Rhodes's liaison to various groups and her role in instructing followers to destroy evidence have made her a notable figure in the investigations surrounding the Jan. 6 breach.

The aftermath of the Jan. 6 violence, which resulted in the death of five individuals and significant injuries to police officers, has led to over 1,400 federal charges being filed against those involved. The attack, fueled by false claims of election fraud, saw a violent intrusion into the Capitol building by supporters of then-President Donald Trump. The legal proceedings for the defendants, including SoRelle, reflect the complexities and consequences of their actions during that tumultuous day.
