Three Men Not Guilty In Whitmer Kidnapping Plot

A decision has been made on the three men charged in a kidnapping plot against Democratic Michigan Governor Gretchen Whitmer:

NOT guilty.

The verdict came after a trial that lasted for two weeks.

Way back in October of 2020, the Federal Bureau of Investigation announced that 13 men had been arrested because they were suspected of orchestrating a plot to kidnap Whitmer.

Reports of the arrest detailed allegations that the 13 men were planning to kidnap Whitmer and overthrow the state government.

Obviously, if that was the plan of the men, it wasn't successful.

Six of the thirteen men were charged with federal crimes.

The other seven of the 13 men were charged with state crimes.

The federally charged defendants were Adam Fox, Ty Garbin, Barry Croft Jr., Kaleb Franks, Daniel Harris, and Brandon Caserta.

The men charged with state crimes were Pete Musico, Joseph Morrison, Shawn Fix, Eric Molitor, Michael Null, William Null, and Paul Bellar.

As of Sept. 15, all but three of the men had learned their fate.

On that day, Eric Molitor, Bill Null, and Michael Null learned theirs as well:

Innocent by decision of the jury.

Not all of their associates were so lucky.

Barry Croft Jr. was sentenced to over 19 years in prison.

Adam Fox received 16 years in prison.

Joseph Morrison was sentenced to at least ten years in prison.

Paul Bellar was sentenced to at least seven years in prison.

Kaleb Franks was sentenced to 4 years in prison.

Pete Musico and Ty Garbin were sentenced to over two years in prison.
