Ammon and Ryan Bundy have been found not guilty of conspiracy. Their five co-defendants Jeff Banta, Shawna Cox, David Fry, Kenneth Medenbach and Neil Wampler have all been found not guilty as well. 

The jury returned its verdict after some six weeks and less than six hours of deliberation with a newly placed jury member.

OPB’s Anna Griffin talks to staff members Amelia Templeton, Dave Blanchard and Ryan Haas, who were all at the federal courthouse in Portland for the conclusion of the trial.
