Despite being acquitted by a federal jury Tuesday, Bundy brothers Ammon and Randy still remain in jail.
The brothers, as well as a number of other co-defendants, were acquitted in the case involving the occupation of the Malheur National Wildlife Refuge.
The band of ranchers and farmers had commandeered the refuge at the start of the year to protest what they felt was the illegal seizure of land by the federal government.
After the standoff eventually ended in late January, federal prosecutors charged them with “conspiring to impede federal workers from their jobs,” as reported by Fox News, but as Tuesday’s news demonstrates, the charges did not stick.
Sadly for the Bundy brothers, however, the story is far from over.
