Proud Boys’ Tarrio Pleads Not Guilty to Jan. 6 Conspiracy Charges

Proud Boys leader Enrique Tarrio, indicted last month over the January 6th riot, pleaded not guilty Tuesday to conspiracy and other felony charges. 

Tarrio entered the plea at a virtual hearing that came nearly a month after he was arrested and charged with conspiracy to obstruct an official preceding, per The Hill. 

Prosecutors alleged that Tarrio helped rally the Proud Boys to make the journey to Washington D.C. with the intent of obstructing Congress’ certification of the Electoral College votes. 

As previously reported by Human Events News, though Tarrio was not present on the day of the attack, he was arrested on January 4th and ordered to stay away from Washington D.C. after allegedly burning a stolen flag from an African American church the month before. 

In an exclusive August 2021 interview with Human Events News, Tarrio said: “The number one concern for Americans today should be the government of the United States and its use of selective prosecution. Our own government is turning against us. One thing that the Proud Boys have in common with BLM is that we are both understanding who the real villain is. It’s the federal government.”

If convicted, Tarrio faces a maximum possible prison sentence of 20 years.
