In a significant development, the last three defendants in the case related to the alleged attempt to kidnap and harm Governor Gretchen Whitmer of Michigan have been acquitted. After a three-week trial, the jury reached its verdict after deliberating for about a day. Michael Null, William Null, and Eric Molitor were found not guilty on September 15 of charges related to providing material support for terrorist acts and firearm charges, both of which are felonies.
Prosecutor James Rossiter argued during closing statements on September 14 that the three men aided and abetted a plot to bring terrorism to Antrim County. He emphasized the wrongfulness of assisting individuals planning a terrorist act.
However, William Barnett, representing Mr. Molitor, countered that the prosecution was desperate to establish wrongdoing and suggested that the case had become a story they couldn’t retract from. He accused the trial of taking shortcuts to convict innocent individuals.
The acquittal of the last three defendants in the case marks a significant legal victory. After a thorough trial, the jury concluded that there was insufficient evidence to convict Michael Null, William Null, and Eric Molitor of the charges brought against them. The case had garnered significant attention, with the prosecution alleging that the defendants were involved in a plot to commit acts of terrorism.
The defense argued that the prosecution’s case was weak and based on desperation rather than concrete evidence. Ultimately, the jury sided with the security, highlighting the importance of a fair and just legal process.
This verdict ends a chapter in the high-profile case that had been closely watched. It underscores the principle of “innocent until proven guilty” and highlights the importance of a rigorous legal system in determining individuals’ guilt or innocence.
