Mixed Verdicts on Malheur Protest Trial II are in:

By Bret Roush

Each defendant was found guilty of at least one charge.

  • Count 1) Conspiracy to Impede Federal Officers by Threats of Force or Intimidation
  • Count 2) Carrying a weapon on Federal Property
  • Count 6) Depredation of Federal Property (Only against Jake Ryan)
  • Count 7) Depredation of Federal Property (Only against Duane Ehmer)

If the defendant was not found guilty on count one they could not be found guilty on count two.

Jason Patrick was found guilty on count one, but not count two.

Darryl Thorn was found guilty on counts one and two.

Duane Ehmer was found guilty on count seven.

Jake Ryan was found guilty on count six.

Before the judge returned to the courtroom, Darryl Thorn led the gallery (those that wished to participate) in the Lord’s Prayer.

Matthew Schindler tried to break the tension, “Who is getting tased?”.  US Marshals did not appreciate that bit of levity as one came back into the courtroom to remind everyone that no reactions were allowed.

It was stressed after that there would be no reaction to the verdicts being read, by Judge Brown and again by the courtroom guards.

All of the defendants were released pending sentencing on May 10th.

“This verdict changes nothing on the righteousness of the message.” -Schindler

  1. If this was not a trial by jury or a jury trial then there is no verdict. A judge cannot give a verdict he is the referee to make sure the peace is upheld.

  2. Bad day in Portland. Jurors would have decided differently had they known there were misdemeanor charges, but you can’t inform the jurors when it benefits the prosecution to keep them in the dark. Now it’s on to Gary Hunt. Anna J will probably issue the arrest warrant within the next few hours. I wonder if the Oregonian and Oregon Public Radio are at all concerned about a guy who’s been a reporter since Conrad Wilson was in preschool.

  3. Shindler might have added that this verdict changes nothing in our determination to fight an out of control federal Govt. The bizarre outcome of this Malhure #2, coming as it did after an across the board exoneration of the leadership in the first trial, was met with bafflement even in left-leaning circles. We pro-activists have had the federals in a heads we win, tails they lose position since the start of this affair, and the irreconcilable gulf between justice,or even decency, produced by Williams and Co – the UA Attorney – is manifest to all. As our redoubtable Ms Dovale has noted above,the federals have labored mightily – and have produced a boondoggle. Reversals on appeal should be little more than a formality. Sad farewells took place on Patriot corner, dear friends and compadres facing the inevitable parting of ways. Raggedy band that we are, we have shared in this historic fight, boots on the ground, and our bond of affection will always warm our hearts.
