“All defendants found not guilty” was the update at The Oregonian regarding the trial of multiple defendants of the Malheur National Wildlife Refuge occupation. The Oregonian summed up the trial nicely:
Ammon Bundy and six-co-defendants are charged with conspiring to impede federal employees at the Malheur National Wildlife Refuge through intimidation, threat or force stemming from the 41-day occupation of the Malheur National Wildlife Refuge. Four of the seven defendants are charged with possessing guns in a federal facility. Two of the defendants each face an additional charge of theft of government property.
The jury put their heads together and found the government’s case lacking. We wrote about it when it first happened in January of this year. It’s been a long year, but thankfully the verdicts came down as not guilty.
