Son of prominent NYC Judge arrested for invading Capitol

NEW YORK (77WABC) – The son of a New York City judge who stormed the Capitol on January 6th clad in fur and carrying a shield has been arrested.

On Tuesday, Federal agents arrested, Aaron Mostofsky, at his brother’s house in Brooklyn.  He’s facing multiple charges, including theft of government property for allegedly stealing a police riot shield and a bulletproof vest.  His picture appeared all over social media wearing the alleged stolen items.

Mostofsky, is the son of Shlomo (Steven) Mostofsky, a Kings County Brooklyn Supreme Court judge and a prominent figure in the Orthodox Jewish community.  Judge Mostofsky is also the former president of the National Council of Young Israel, an Orthodox synagogue association that has been outspokenly pro-Trump.

On Wednesday, Aaron Mostofsky told The New York Post, “We were cheated. I don’t think 75 million people voted for Trump — I think it was close to 85 million. I think certain states that have been red for a long time turned blue and were stolen, like New York.”

Mostofsky is expected to be arraigned Tuesday evening.
