Bremerton man guilty of four Jan. 6 Capitol events

A Bremerton man found to be at the U.S. Capitol Building during the events of Jan. 6, 2021, has been found guilty of four misdemeanor federal charges.

A U.S. District Court jury found David Charles Rhine, the managing principal at Cox & Lucy CPA in Gig Harbor, guilty of all four charges against him after concluding deliberations April 24.

Charges included entering and remaining in a restricted building or grounds, disorderly and disruptive conduct in a restricted building or grounds, disorderly conduct in a Capitol building, and parading, demonstrating or picketing in a Capitol building.

Rhine was arrested and charged in November 2021 after two people provided tips to the FBI saying he was inside the building that day. One tipster pointed him out in security camera footage inside the building.

Court documents indicate Rhine was detained inside the building and had two knives and pepper spray. Rhine’s sentencing is set for Sept. 11.
