The two men who were set up by the FBI in an accused kidnapping attempt are back in court. The judge is not allowing the hung jury in the first trial to be used as evidence.
Two men were found guilty in the FBI’s made-up kidnapping case in Michigan and two men were released due to a hung jury. Now the two men released by the hung jury are back in court.
This case was so bad that the Babylon Bee made fun of it. Our FBI spends more time setting conservatives up than it does catching real criminals.
Now the judge in the second case against Adam Fox and Barry Croft says that the hung jury cannot be used as evidence in this case.
Another federal trial is scheduled to begin in two weeks for two men accused of conspiring to kidnap Governor Gretchen Whitmer.
But jurors won’t be told much about their previous trial. In a final pretrial hearing Tuesday afternoon in Grand Rapids judge Robert Jonker ruled on what will and won’t be allowed to be presented as evidence in the upcoming trial. One thing that jurors won’t hear, Jonker said, is that two other men were found not guilty of the kidnapping conspiracy during the previous trial in the fall.
Adam Fox and Barry Croft are facing trial for the second time, after a jury deadlocked on their charges in the spring. Two other men – Daniel Harris and Brandon Caserta – were both acquitted.
But the outcome of the first trial should not be part of deliberations for jurors in the second trial, Jonker told attorneys Tuesday. In particular, evidence of the acquitals for Harris and Caserta can’t be introduced as evidence in the trial, though Jonker said jurors may ultimately hear about it.
Just tell the jury the truth boys and hope you have a fair jury like the last case. Most Americans are tired of being accused of being racists and Nazis and set up by the US Justice system.
