More than 500 people have been charged with federal crimes since supporters of then-President Donald Trump violently stormed the US Capitol on January 6 in an attempt to stop Congress from certifying President Joe Biden as president.

Nearly five months later, only two rioters have pleaded guilty in court.

Jon Schaffer, the guitarist and founder of the metal band "Iced Earth", was the first insurrectionist to file a guilty plea and agreed to cooperate with prosecutors, according to DOJ filings. Schaffer is also a member of the Oath Keepers militia, which prosecutors said planned and practiced their attack on the Capitol weeks in advance.

This table includes the names, accepted charges, and links to court documents of all the people who have pleaded guilty so far. We'll keep it updated as more names are released.

Attorney General Merrick Garland told members of the Senate during his confirmation hearing that he planned to personally oversee the Justice Department's handling of the rioters.

"I will supervise the prosecution of white supremacists and others who stormed the Capitol on January 6 - a heinous attack that sought to disrupt a cornerstone of our democracy: the peaceful transfer of power to a newly elected government," Garland said.

It's unclear how lenient Garland and the DOJ will be on the guilty pleas as the two men so far haven't been sentenced yet.

The FBI is still seeking the public's help to identify people who took part in one of the most documented crimes in US history.

Update 5/2/2021: The Department of Justice originally listed Jared Adams as a defendant who pleaded guilty, but the DOJ later corrected its website to say Adams pleaded not guilty for his charges. Insider's database has been updated accordingly.
