An Atlantic City DJ who went to Washington, D.C. on Jan 6, 2021, to attend the Trump rally on the National Mall and then entered the U.S. Capitol building with his father was sentenced Thursday to 45 days in prison, according to the Philadelphia Inquirer.

Atlantic City Man Gets Prison Time for Role in Capitol Riot

James Rahm III, known as JD Rahm, pleaded guilty in October to impeding law enforcement during a civil disorder.

Rahm's father, Doug Rahm, was found guilty of all charges in October 2022 and is facing one year in prison. He remains free pending an appeal of his case.

JD Rahm said he went with his father that day to video the event. Ironically, it was the video he took with his Go-Pro camera and posted on Twitter that led the FBI to arrest him later.

“Oh, my f— God, we just stormed the Capitol,” JD Rahm shouted in one clip posted just moments before he entered the building, according to court documents.

 What Did Atlantic City DJ's Capitol Video Show?

The video showed Rahm III leading a crowd of people inside the Capitol who forced officers away from one of the Capitol’s exterior doors and opened them to allow dozens of other rioters inside. Among those who gained entry through those doors was his father.

Rahm’s video appears to show him lighting up a joint in the Capitol Rotunda.

Rahm Jr. deleted all his own social media posts from Jan. 6 in the days after the attack Investigators later uncovered text messages from Doug Rahm in which he boasted of entering Pelosi’s office with his son.

“I pissed in her office,” he texted one friend, according to an exchange quoted in government court filings. “My son’s got video.”

Who is JD Rahm?

Rahm's lawyer described him as “a 100 percent fine young man. He’s a Catholic school-educated, choir boy at his church in Atlantic City, serves in food kitchens, and volunteers with the Boy Scouts."

According to his testimony, JD Rahm attended Holy Spirit High School in Absecon and then graduated from La Salle University in 2017. He currently lives with his mother in Atlantic City.

Rahm testified that he is a DJ. 'Currently I'm a DJ, that's my main thing. And then I also do like the various like delivery services. I just started doing them actually, like it's like Grub Hub and Shipt and those kinds of things."

The Impact of These Charges on Rahm

JD Rahm told the judge that he had already suffered greatly for his misdemeanor offense during the U.S. Capitol riot.

"My DJ career, which I had diligently built over the years, suffered a significant setback as all major social media platforms have banned me, erasing years of networking and promotional work," he said in a letter to the judge.

"Some neighbors no longer speak with me. Some friends have exited my life. To this day I receive anonymous calls and hate mail at my home, even death threats."
