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.

The son of a NY judge was arrested Tuesday for participating in last week's violent rampage at the US Capitol building by supporters of President Donald Trump, prosecutors said.

Mostofsky faces four charges, including theft of government property, unlawful entry to a restricted building and disorderly conduct, according to the chargesheet. He is due to appear before a judge in Brooklyn later Tuesday.

His father, Shlomo Mostofsky, is a judge of the Kings County Supreme Court, and his brother Nachman is a senior Republican figure in the borough.

The 34-year-old appeared in several photographs taken during the insurrection, including one where he's wearing a Capitol Police bulletproof vest and riot shield, and another where he's standing behind "QAnon Shaman" Jake Angeli. Mostofsky told the Post he went to D.C. on January 6 to protest a "stolen election".

According to the criminal complaint obtained by Complex, the Federal Bureau of Investigation also found an abundant record of Mostofsky's activity inside the Capitol thanks to social media.

On Wednesday last week, thousands of US President, Donald Trump's supporters, fuelled by his unsubstantiated claims of voter fraud, flooded the nation's capital protesting the certification of Joe Biden's victory by the US Congress.

No fewer than five persons have died from the events of that day.
