The sentencing range for the Oath Keeper convicts:

Federal sentencing guidelines are an art unto themselves. Here's a little info on the possible ranges along with guideline enhancements.



Don't underestimate the OK defense lawyers. IMHO they did an excellent job. They beat a number of charges including some against Rhodes. Remember the government chooses who to prosecute, what charges to bring and what the evidence will be for conviction. They really should win most of the time.
