No convictions in Michigan governor kidnap plot; 2 men acquitted, 2 face new trial

The historic Michigan Gov. Gretchen Whitmer kidnap plot trial ended with no convictions Friday, delivering a blow to the government as it failed to convince a jury that four men were domestic terrorists determined to harm the governor because of her COVID-19 restrictions.

The jury acquitted Daniel Harris on all four counts, and Brandon Caserta was acquitted on the one count of kidnapping conspiracy — so both men are free to go.

The jury deadlocked on charges against Adam Fox and Barry Croft, so a mistrial was declared for those defendants.

The U.S. Attorneys office in Grand Rapids said it will retry the men, and that it is "obviously" disappointed in the outcome of the case.

  1. Gotta love Democrats. Go to a fair trial, lose and then announce you're going to do it again and again until the judge gives you the decision you want!
