Klein and Cappuccio went to the Lower West Terrace, where their victims were. They attacked police officer Daniel Hodges, who was recorded on camera being pinned to a metal door frame by the mob with Klein’s help, in one of the most traumatic incidents of the day.
Klein was convicted on all counts, including 10 felony charges which involved six violent confrontations with law enforcement officers and obstruction of the electoral vote count, after a week-long bench trial before U.S. District Judge Trevor N. McFadden.

U.S. District Judge Trevor McFadden said, “No police officer should have had to put up with these unprovoked assaults.” He pointed to specific video evidence presented during the trial to disprove Klein’s claims that he acted unconsciously.
A jury found Klein guilty after video evidence showed him attacking police officers and attempting to breach the Capitol. His defense claimed he was caught up in the moment and had no intention of causing harm.
