FEDERAL GOVERNMENT CASE AGAINST BUNKERVILLE DEFENDENTS CRUSHED BY JURY
NOT GUILTY ON 34 COUNTS, HUNG ON SIX OTHERS
Four men freed from jail tonight with two set to have a detention hearing tomorrow at 9:30am.
At around 5pm the jury in the second Bunkerville standoff trial announced its verdicts with not guilty on 34 of the 40 charges against the four defendants.
Ricky Lovelien and Steven Stewart were found not guilty on all charges.
Scott Drexler found not guilty on eight of ten charges.
Eric Parker found not guilty on six of ten charges.
All of the men had been tried before earlier this year with the jury hung on the charges against them.
They were taken to a jail in Henderson, Nevada where they were freed several hours after the verdicts.
