Democracy didn’t die in Washington, D.C. on Jan. 6, 2021, despite the efforts of the 75 Pennsylvanians who have been arrested to date for participating in the deadly attack on the US Capitol.

Pennsylvania holds the dubious distinction of having the third-most residents arrested for participating in the deadly Jan. 6 attack on the United States Capitol, in which five people died and dozens were seriously injured after a swarm of Donald Trump supporters — fresh from being told to “fight like hell” by the former president at a nearby “Stop the Steal” rally — descended upon the Capitol with the intent to upend democracy by any means necessary. 

According to the Department of Justice (DOJ), only Florida, with 89, and Texas, with 76, had more residents arrested in connection to the insurrection. 

Overall, according to the DOJ, more than 950 defendants have been arrested in nearly all 50 states and Washington, D.C., as of Jan. 3. More than 284 defendants have been charged with assaulting, resisting, or impeding officers or employees, including 15 Pennsylvanians. Thirty-three Pennsylvanians have been sentenced, with several others expected to be sentenced this month. Two died by suicide while awaiting sentencing.
