A resident of Tallahassee, Florida, received a 40-month prison sentence and 36 months of supervised release for his involvement in the breach of the U.S. Capitol on January 6, 2021, announced the U.S. Attorney’s Office for the District of Columbia.

Details of the Incident

Raymund Joseph Cholod, 54, pleaded guilty to a felony charge of assaulting, resisting, or impeding certain officers on February 12, 2024, as per a press release on Tuesday.

According to court documents, Cholod was part of a mob that unlawfully assembled in the Lower West Terrace Tunnel of the Capitol building during the events of January 6, 2021.

Timeline of Events

At around 2:41 p.m., Cholod was among the initial group of rioters to breach the Tunnel and confront law enforcement. The mob, led by Cholod, proceeded to push against the police line within the Tunnel.

Despite being instructed to halt by an officer, Cholod persisted, even grabbing a U.S. Capitol police riot shield. By 2:54 p.m., he had exited the Tunnel but remained in the vicinity outside the Lower West Terrace.

Cholod then picked up a long black solid stick from the ground and hurled it into the Tunnel, where law enforcement personnel were stationed to prevent rioters from entering the Capitol building.
