J6 Rioter Convicted of Seven Felonies Could Face Decades in Prison

Metropolitan Police Officer Daniel Hodges 

Patrick McCaughey III was involved in the violent assault of a police officer. The incident was caught on camera and obtained by NBC Connecticut Investigates earlier this year.

The video was presented as evidence during McCaughey’s bench trial. It shows him pinning Metropolitan Police Officer Daniel Hodges with a riot shield as a crowd pushes its way into the Capitol. McCaughey can be heard yelling at the officers to yield to the rioters.

Late Tuesday afternoon, a federal judge found him guilty on nine counts, including an act of physical violence on Capitol grounds.

He’ll be sentenced January 26.
