WASHINGTON, D.C. – Three Central Florida members of the Oath Keepers group will still go to trial in April for their alleged roles in the Capitol Hill riot, according to federal court documents, despite a new indictment being handed down.
Meggs, Isaacs and Beeks were asked to enter a plea to a superseding indictment in court Tuesday, which charged the national leader of the Oath Keepers group, Stewart Rhodes, Florida leader Kelly Meggs and associate Kenneth Harrelson with seditious conspiracy.
Meggs, Isaacs and Beeks were charged with conspiracy to obstruct an official proceeding, aiding and abetting, conspiracy to prevent and officer from discharging their duties, aiding and abetting to destroy government property and entering and remaining inside a restricted building.
Meggs and Isaacs pleaded not guilty to the charges on Tuesday, while Beeks remained silent and did not enter a plea, according to court records.
The judge severed their case from the seditious conspiracy case, and he scheduled jury selection to begin on April 19.
Twenty-six Central Florida residents faced charges in connection with the Capitol Hill riot.
