Miami, Fla. – January 7, 2021 – GrayRobinson, P.A. (GrayRobinson) white collar criminal defense attorney, Joel Hirschhorn, shareholder in the Firm’s Miami law firm office, was quoted in the VOA article, "US Opens Criminal Probe Into Assault on Capitol." The article discusses how U.S. law enforcement authorities have opened a criminal investigation into Wednesday's attack on the U.S. Capitol by rioters, enlisting hundreds of investigators to identify and arrest the perpetrators.
The arrests mark the beginning of a potentially months-long effort to bring the perpetrators to justice. Hirschhorn said arresting and charging every rioter is going to be virtually impossible. "I think anyone who was inside the Capitol building is at risk because that was a trespass on government property," Hirschhorn said. "Will they be able to prosecute all of them? No, that's an impossibility."
