Federal Bureau of Investigation arrests son of Brooklyn judge on Capitol riot charges

The Sanford Fire Department firefighter and paramedic seen in still pictures and video inside the U.S. Capitol during last Wednesday's riot has been arrested.

Mostofsky will appear in Brooklyn federal court on Tuesday afternoon to face four criminal charges, including theft of government property, which is a felony.

According to NBC News, Aaron Mostofsky, 34, who was clad in furs during the riots, was arrested in the NY area and is expected to make an initial appearance in Brooklyn federal court later Tuesday.

34-year-old Aaron Mostofsky was arrested Tuesday and brought before a Brooklyn judge - not his father, Brooklyn Supreme Court Judge, Shlomo Mostofsky - this judge is federal.

While the riots were still happening, Aaron Mostofsky did an interview with the NY Post, stating that he believed the election was stolen and he was exercising his rights.

"I don't think 75 million people voted for Trump - I think it was close to 85 million", Mostofsky told the New York Post on the day of the storming. "I think certain states that have been red for a long time turned blue and were stolen, like NY".

They cite photographs of Mostofsky, including on his Instagram page, which show him inside the Capitol with the shield and vest. If convicted, he could be sentenced to 10 years in prison.

The judge also said Mostofsky's forbidden from communicating with his co-defendants, can not participate in any political gatherings, and has to steer clear of all state capitals.
