The son of a Brooklyn judge, who memorably wore a vest and bulletproof vest inside the Capitol on January 6, 2021, pleaded guilty to three counts, including disorderly conduct, having Possibly 5 years in prison.

Aaron Mostofsky35 years old, appeared from afar before the US District Judge James Boasberg on Wednesday. He was guilty of civil disorder, one felony and two misdemeanors: theft of government property and entering and staying in a restricted building or property.

The charge of civil disorder carries a penalty of up to five years in prison along with a fine of up to $250,000. Each misdemeanor charge carries a prison sentence of up to one year and a fine of up to $100,000.

Mostofsky made the first headline after January 6 as the riot shield-wearing, slingshot son of a Brooklyn judge, who was discovered inside the Capitol after crowds of Donald Trump Supporters overcame the police and broke into the building to prevent Congress from certifying Joe Bidenwon the 2020 presidential election.

Days later, federal agents then found him hiding at his brother’s house in Brooklyn. He was arrested and detained, but he was eventually released after raucous bail hearing.

Under an eight-count superseding indictment filed in November, Mostofsky faces charges of obstructing formal process by Congress, which could carry up to 20 years in prison. That indictment dropped one count of theft of government property, which included a 10-year prison sentence.

Boasberg, a Barack Obama appointee, told Mostofsky at Wednesday’s hearing that he could potentially sentence him to a total of seven years in prison.

Mostofsky admitted that he had joined a riot group near an area known as the Circle of Peace. Those rioters were up against a line of policemen trying to maneuver a barricade. Mostofsky was not on the front lines of that riot group, but he joined them by “lending [his] Boasberg said.

Mostofsky also admitted to picking up a Capitol Police vest and wearing it while he was at the Senate door of the capitol building. He admitted he entered the structure shortly after the initial break-in at the Senate door, and he admitted to having brought a police vest and riot shield when he left the building less than 30 minutes later.

Mostofsky’s father is a Kings County Superior Court Judge Shlomo Mostofsky, former president of the National Council of Israel’s Youth. He was elected to the bench in January 2020 with donate of the Brooklyn Democratic Party.

Despite the Democratic support of his father, Mostofsky himself is a fervent fan of the former president.

“We were fooled,” Mostofsky told New York Post in an interview from inside the Capitol building on January 6. “I don’t think 75 million people voted for Trump — I think it’s closer to 85 million. I think some states that have been red for a long time have turned blue and stolen, like New York.”

Boasberg delivered Mostofsky’s sentence on May 6, 2020.
