Son of Brooklyn Supreme Court judge pleads guilty to federal charges related to Capitol riot


The son of a Brooklyn Supreme court judge, who was arrested outside of his Midwood home six days after he attended the US Capitol riot on Jan. 6, 2021 dressed as a caveman, pleaded guilty to charges Wednesday in Washington, DC. 

Aaron Mostofsky — the youngest son of sitting Brooklyn Supreme Court Judge Shlomo Mostofsky, who was elected to the post in 2020 — was pictured among the crowd who stormed a joint session of US Congress last January in an attempt to block the certification of the presidential election results, and now-President Joe Biden’s tenure, incited by former President Donald Trump.
