Jurors in the trial of seven occupiers of the Malheur National Wildlife Refuge will continue deliberations Monday. The jury began discussing the case on Thursday before leaving for the weekend.
Ongoing coverage of the federal case against the people involved in the 41-day armed occupation of the Malheur National Wildlife Refuge and how life has changed in Harney County, Oregon.
Federal prosecutors say the group conspired to prevent federal employees from doing their jobs at the Eastern Oregon wildlife refuge, near Burns, Oregon.
The jurors are considering multiple charges for some of the defendants, including theft of government property and carrying a firearm in a federal facility.
There’s a huge amount of evidence in the case. Jurors heard some six weeks of testimony from federal prosecutors and seven separate defense teams.
This week, the 12 jurors are scheduled to deliberate Monday to Thursday, or until there’s a verdict. #Oregonstandoff— Conrad Wilson (@conradjwilson) October 24, 2016
