McCaughey was one of several rioters involved in the assault of Hodges in the tunnel of the lower west terrace. McCaughey pinned Hodges to a door with a clear police shield while another rioter ripped Hodges’ gas mask off.

Unlike the other violent defendents, McCaughet's family is rich so he got kid glove treatment by a tRUMP appointed judge. Anyone considered dangerous was in jail but not this guy!
Here is another view of McCaighey violence. Sorry, but WIX will no longer let me upload Twitter videos. https://video.twimg.com/ext_tw_video/1356369509163143170/pu/vid/320x568/gE1OuXc0iXbCKKUD.mp4

Bench trial with Judge Magaty McFadden September 13, 2022. McCaughey was convicted of seven felony charges: three counts of aiding or abetting or assaulting, resisting, or impeding law enforcement officers, including one involving a dangerous weapon; one count of obstruction of an official proceeding; one count of interfering with a law enforcement officer during a civil disorder; one count of disorderly and disruptive conduct in a restricted building or grounds with a deadly or dangerous weapon, and one count of engaging in physical violence in a restricted building or grounds with a deadly or dangerous weapon. The two misdemeanor charges include: disorderly conduct in a Capitol Building and committing an act of violence in the Capitol Building or grounds.
At trial McCaughey concedes that he could have left the tunnel at any point but that “I wouldn’t say that I was entirely responsible for hurting” Officer Hodges. On Tuesday September 13th, 2022 he was convicted at a bench trial by U.S. District Judge Trevor N. McFadden of all nine charges against him, seven of which were felonies. Sentenced to: 90 months in prison for nine offenses, 36 months of supervised release and restitution of $2,000. 'McCaughey had faced a recommended sentencing guideline of 151-188 months in prison and prosecutors asked for him to receive 15 years behind bars. His attorney, Dennis Boyle, requested a significant downward variance to just one year in prison.' McFadden agreed to recommend McCaughey be placed at the low-security prison in Danbury, Connecticut, near where his family is located. https://www.wusa9.com/article/news/national/capitol-riots/selfless-connecticut-man-who-crushed-officer-in-doorframe-asks-for-lenient-sentence-patrick-mccaughey-daniel-hodges-ridgefield-capitol-riot-jan-6/65-e8e34355-3b0d-4bea-9ec8-80f5f9042120
