Defendants in Oregon Wildlife Refuge Occupation Found Not Guilty

A jury has found all seven defendants not guilty of conspiracy and firearms charges linked to an armed occupation of a federal wildlife refuge in Oregon earlier this year.

The defendants included brothers Ammon and Ryan Bundy, the alleged leaders of the occupation that lasted nearly six weeks. They, and five others, were exonerated on the charges of conspiring to impede federal workers from their jobs at the Malheur National Wildlife Refuge.
