James Beeks, a Broadway actor who joined the anti-government Oath Keepers in breaching the U.S. Capitol had been found NOT GUILTY by the court.
A one-time Broadway actor who portrayed the role of Judas Iscariot in a tour of Jesus Christ Superstar had been noticed joining the capitol riot last June 6 wearing a Michael Jackson jacket.
The Broadway actor joined the anti-government extremist group, Oath Keepers, in breaching the U.S. Capitol last January 6, 2023, according to the report of Law & Crime.
Beeks underwent pretrial trial supervision but was released after the court found him not guilty.
Events During The U.S Capitol Riot
Beeks had joined the Oath Keepers last December 21, 2022, two weeks before the U.S. Capitol riot.
Beeks joined the group last January 4, 2023, 2 days before the U.S Capitol riot.
This riot took place when Trump’s supporters went into the building the moment Congress had started to confirm Biden’s victory in the 2020 presidential election.
The Oath Keepers was said to be founded by Stewart Rhodes, its leader, and Kelly Meggs, a top deputy.
Beeks was found not guilty because the government failed to provide pieces of evidence that would support his involvement in the U.S. Capitol riot.
